The linguistic relativity theory, as reformulated by John A. Lucy, is of great importance for contemporary studies on language and on its role in the human nature. His approach to the linguistic relativity theory dialogues with different disciplines: anthropology, linguistics, psychology, psycholinguistic and philosophy. Lucy presents in depth-studies of the most important approaches starting from the explicit foundation of the theory to the recent and more innovative studies. He elaborates a theoretical reformulation as well as an empirical method that face the most relevant problems of the theory; the definition of the concepts of language, thought and reality, the establishment of a neutral metalanguage, the research of non-linguistic data, the importance of a multidisciplinary approach. Herein, particular attention is paid to the importance of linguistic relativism for philosophical studies and, in particular, for the development of a philosophical understanding of language.
