The founder of the idea that language and worldview are inextricable is the Prussian philologist , Wilhelm von Humboldt (1767–1835). Humboldt argued that language was part of the creative adventure of mankind. [ vague ] Culture, language and linguistic communities developed simultaneously, he argued, and could not do so without one another. In stark contrast to linguistic determinism , which invites us to consider language as a constraint, a framework or a prison house, Humboldt maintained that speech is inherently and implicitly creative. Human beings take their place in speech and continue to modify language and thought by their creative exchanges.
