With tipped in slip at front "From the Author/ A. B. Johnson esq./ of Utica/ N.Y."' Johnson was an Amewrican philosopher and banker."Johnson asserted that language is "subordinate" to nature because there are not enough words to describe limitless experiences. To reconcile this inconsistency, he devised an operational method of studying the function of language, differentiating its "physical," "emotional," and "intellectual" components. He adapted his linguistic theory in writings on politics, economics, and morality. Ency. Brit.
