About this item

There are at least four threads running through this book on linguists Ferdinand de Saussure (1857-1913) Albert Sechehaye (1870-1946), says Seuren. First there is the will-nigh mythical status of Saussure, and second the denial of adequate recognition of his subordinate Sechehaye. Third is the colorful world of the late 19th and early 20th centuries with its new perspectives, discoveries and insights, where academics were groping for clarity in areas that were only gradually revealing their secrets, and the world was transmuting--sometime violently--from status-conscious and class-ridden societies to today's global world. The final theme is the place of linguistic theory in its historical, cultural, and philosophical context. Annotation ©2018 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
