Traditionally, language was regarded as an example of a cultural and a social phenomenon, as opposed to a natural or a biological one. This distinction of culturally acquired (nurture) against the naturally (nature) reflects, in fact, the previous gap between the two cultures of human and natural sciences that Snow tried to solve since 1951. Today it is considered that the language has a deep biological basis with wellestablished evidence in the scientific community. For the assertion that the power of language depends on the genes, it is needed a more comprehensive understanding of human cognition where language would be integrated with other neurogenetic cognitive processes and neuro-physiological interaction between humanity and reality.
