9780415063975: Landmarks in Linguistic Thought Volume II: The Western Tradition in the Twentieth Century (History of Linguistic Thought) (Vol 2)

Landmarks in Linguistic Thought II introduces the major issues and themes that have determined the development of Western thinking about language, meaning and communication in the twentieth century.
Each chapter contains an extract from a 'landmark' text followed by a commentary, which places the ideas in their social and intellectual context. The book is written in an accessible and non-technical manner.
The book summarizes the contribution of the key thinkers who have shaped modern linguistics: Austin, Chomsky, Derrida, Firth, Goffman, Harris, Jakobson, Labov, Orwell, Sapir, Whorf and Wittgenstein.
This second volume follows on from Landmarks in Linguistic Thought I, which introduces the key thinkers up to the twentieth century.
The series is ideal for anyone with an interest in the history of linguistics or of ideas.

About the Author:

John E. Joseph teaches at the University of Edinburgh. Nigel Love teaches at the University of Cape Town. Talbot J. Taylor teaches at the College of William and Mary.

Review:

"Fills a long-standing need for an intellectually solid survey of thought about language that bridges the divide between language philosophy and linguistics. Should be required reading in virtually any academic course, graduate or undergraduate, that deals to any extent with language."
-Paul Hopper, Carnegie Mellon University, USA
"An ideal introduction to the whole gamut of current linguistic ideas...The ideal introduction for a beginner to the basic issues.."
-Ashish Mehta, Jawaharlal Nehru University of India
