Cambridge Companion to Saussure
BeschreibungFerdinand de Saussure is widely considered to be the founder of both modern Linguistics and Structuralism. This Companion brings together a team of leading scholars to offer a fresh new account of Saussures work. As well as looking at his pioneering Course in General Linguistics, they consider his lesser-known early work, his more recently-discovered manuscripts, and his influence on other disciplines such as cultural studies, philosophy, literature and semiotics. With contributions by specialists in each field, this comprehensive guide creates a unique picture of the lasting importance of Saussures thought.
