Economy nowadays demonstrates that human society must eliminate any waste of time, space, intelligence. Only where this is not followed as stated, the crisis is more obvious. No matter how many disputes it created, we must agree that this economic crisis has alerted the whole world in all its dimensions. The more social rationality was discussed, which led to discussions about economic rationality, the more the depth of this crisis was proved. In fact, this crisis marks out that human society must change, in both its qualitative and its quantitative aspects. The understanding of the crisis we’re experiencing, including the economic crisis, implies a concept re-evaluation of the language aspects by which we mark the phenomena of social life.
