The written language of thought is often difficult and inaccessible. Herder's formation and use of sculptural lexemes shows how we can be rigorous and creative with our thinking. Philosophical writing should be read in an inventive manner. Herder triggers, provokes and enthuses, because he treats philosophy as if it were sculptural, that is, he allows a space to be generated for the reader to imagine philosophy as a sculptural practice, and through this process present new ways to read and write with the tools of formation.
