Foundations for a Science of Language
This volume presents, for the first time in English, a representative view of Gustave Guillaume's thought. The texts, drawn mainly from his manuscript notes for lectures at the Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes in Paris, were selected as far as possible for their accessibility, as requiring no prior knowledge of his work. The result is a panorama of the far-ranging and often provocative thought of one of the twentieth century's most original linguists.
