The methodological content of the assumption on the occurrence of “nonverbal” thinking is observed. The above assumption arises when the methodological (philosophical) aspect of study is substituted for a special-scientific one, i.e., when the relation between language and thought is observed as a relation of two absolutely independent, genetically unrelated phenomena, when thought is considered a mere “ability” of an individual. Consistently applying the Marxist methodology to analyse the links between thought and language, the problem of “nonverbal” thinking does not arise.
