about

This book compares attitudes to empiricism in language study from mid-twentieth century philosophy of language and from present-day linguistics. It focuses on responses to the logical positivism of the Vienna Circle, particularly in the work of British philosopher J. L. Austin and the much less well-known work of Norwegian philosopher Arne Naess.

Editorial Reviews

"Chapman provides a fascinating linguistic and philosophical account of the history of empiricism in the study of language from the Vienna Circle in the early 20th century to the present... Linguists will gain from Chapman's rigorous discussion of the philosopical underpinnings of linguistic theory amd methods... Highly recommended." —CHOICE
