The book is not only dedicated to linguists, but also to readers who are not familiar with notations developed in linguistics. The first part of the study presents philosophical justifications for linguistic settlements. These are based on the phenomenological reduction of Edmund Husserl, Karl R. Popper’s falsificationism, the moderate rationalism of science of Izydora Dambska and Andrzej Boguslawski’s lack of the nomological explanation in linguistics. The second part presents a re-examination of the solutions proposed in the field of linguistics, some new philosophical explanations and a discussion of the truth of linguistic propositions.
Ireneusz Bobrowski is Head of the Department of General and Indo-European Linguistics at the Jagiellonian University in Cracow, Poland and he is associated with the Institute of Polish Language at the Polish Academy of Sciences in Cracow. His special field of interest is the methodology and philosophy of linguistics.
