HU Words Are Inadequate to Describe All of Human Experience Debate

Description

 

Nursing homework help

Paper detalis:

I added a document with my debate topic and all the arguments for both con and pro sides as well as the counter attacks of those arguments. I ask for a 3 minute conclusion speech for pro side as well as a 3 minute conclusion speech for con side of this debate. These speeches should conclude the major arguments and counter attacks very briefly and persuade the audience.

 

Words are inadequate to describe all of human experience pro

● you can use words to describe a feeling or something you see, but that never says as much as the actual experience of feeling a devastating or ecstatic state of mind, nor does it say as much as the view of a colourful sunset for example: emotions are much more intense than words ○ but​when an emotion is described, you can empathise and actually feel this emotion through a memory of said emotion and experience it for yourself, so words are enough to describe the experience itself

■ However since the experiencing of emotions is entirely subjective, just because we have a similar understanding of what words describe which emotions, we can not know that the emotion one person feels is the same as the emotion, under the same name, that another person feels.

● not all languages have the same words and some languages lack words for certain concepts. an example is that there is no literal translation for the dutch word ‘gezellig’. so when raised with a certain language, you might not be able to describe anything and everything that humans experience ○ but​some people are bilingual, providing them with a larger vocabulary and increasing the change that there is a word for what you want to describe

■ However they are still held down by the limitation of the languages that they know. ○ but ​there are words in other languages that sort of describe the experience, but maybe with less fitting synonyms. either way you will be able to make yourself clear, if not with one synonym, you can use multiple words to actually describe the feeling

● people might at a certain point not know how to describe something, because they have never felt like this before, or seen anything like this before: they have never experienced anything like this before and don’t know how to describe it ○ Not everyone is able to reach the same level of education and is as literate as the people around them. This may be the result of their lack of education or the society in which they live, since some societies have taboos on certain things. This may reduce the persons ability to learn the language associated with certain feelings or experiences. In regards to a taboo in a persons society, some societies have a taboo /stigma placed on a female menstruating, and the female must keep their experience to themselves. Whilst many women in westernised lands may speak openly and vocally about their experiences, the women who grew up with the stigma placed around menstruating may not even know how to describe what their body is going through and have not learned the language to describe such events ○ but ​there are sufficient words to try and describe an experience, and even though you might not be able to, this doesn’t mean that words are inadequate, because the possibility to describe it is there. you just don’t know how

● there are people who lack certain language skills and they cannot make use of words to describe experiences, and cannot understand the meaning of words when being explained an experience of some sort ○ but ​they have come up with different ways of communicating, for example sign language in some cases. and these ways of communicating can replace words for them, so this new way of communicating should provide them with a way to describe these experiences too ○ but ​if these people cannot communicate at all, there is no other way for them to understand anything explained or described to them, so they can’t be expected to understand a different way of being explained experiences to them ○ but​these people are not representative for the population and therefore we cannot make decisions concerning the entire population based on just their condition con ● words were made up by humans, therefore it should be sufficient to describe human experience ○ but ​it is sufficient to describe what you mean, but not actually to feel what someone experienced at a certain point, and that is what most people intend to share: the magnificence of an experience, not the theoretical description ○ Petrichor (/ˈpɛtrɪkɔːr/) is the earthy ​scent​produced when ​rain​falls on dry soil. The ​word​is constructed from Greek petra (πέτρα), meaning “stone”, and īchōr (ἰχώρ), the fluid that flows in the veins of the gods in Greek mythology.

● we humans have used words to describe our experiences for ages and we understand each other ○ but ​just because some things have been up to mediocre standards, that doesn’t mean that it is the right way of doing things. this is an empirical argument and does not provide certainty that it will work in the future nor that it will work for everyone ○ but ​not everyone is of the opinion that it ‘works’ well. we just don’t have any other option

● books can make you feel all types of emotions when written well and (fictional) books are things we read because we enjoy them. we are able to walk a mile in the character’s shoes and we create pictures in our head of what we read, actually seeing the actions the character experiences in front of us ○ but ​this is actually the other way around. what you’re saying is that you can use your imagination to come up with a feeling that match the words read. this is not an adequate analogy because it is induced wrongly. and this does not mean that words can be used to describe all human experiences ○ but ​we can create an expectation of what we might feel like in this situation, but not actually experience what is experienced by the character ○ but ​we relate this to our own expectations but cannot know for a fact that the character experiences things the same way we do, this way of filling in the blanks is subjective and does not convey a certain message, emotion or experience with certainty
