Galtung, Johan. 1987. Language and war: Is there a connection? Proceedings of CHI '95 Conference Companion on Human Factors in Computing Systems 10 (1) : 2–6. 5 pp.


Despite its appetizing title, the lead-off article to the special issue on language and war is rather sparse. Galtung does have interesting chart titles "languages as carriers of cosmology" comparing European, Chinese and Japanese conceptions of space, time, knowledge, and person-nature, person-person, person-transpersonal relationships. There may be more information available on this as he is summarizing a previous article. (Tim Rohrer)
