Kuhn’s ‘history of science’ is discussed at length (82–112 passim), and II, “Der Cours de linguistique générale und die deutsche Sprachwissenschaft – Anmerkungen zu einigen frühen Reaktionen und Rezeptionsansätzen”, in which the author tries to demonstrate that contrary to received opinion, German linguistics during the 1920s and 1930s did take due note of the Cours (115–173). The otherwise fairly large bib. (175–218) suggests that scholarship dealing with Saussure published after 1980 was largely ignored; this includes Peter Wunderli’s Saussure-Studien of 1981, which appeared as No. 148 of the same series as the present volume, and any post-1978 publication by the present writer on the subject conveniently collected in a 1988 publication (published in December 1987) – cf.
