    <dct:description>&lt;p&gt;The article examines the claim that meaningful thinking depends on language in relation to the philosophy of Karl-Otto Apel. Firstly, it interprets Apel&amp;acute;s position on this issue and puts forward the thesis of a &amp;laquo;real dependance&amp;raquo;, according to which meaningful thinking depends on the existence of a natural language. Secondly, a variety of counterexamples to the latter thesis are being examined. Thirdly, the paper analyses the idea of a &amp;laquo;virtual dependency&amp;raquo;, according to which meaningful thinking depends on its being expressible by a natural language. The fourth and last section sets limits to the latter claim but applies it to the presuppositions of argumentation.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/p&gt;</dct:description>
