Meeting Description: 

Ce colloque r�unit des chercheurs de tendances vari�es dans le but de
confronter l'oeuvre de Saussure avec les travaux contemporains en
linguistique. This colloquium aims to gather scholars working in
various approaches in order to compare Saussure's work with
contemporary research in linguistics.

Ce colloque en hommage aux travaux de linguistique saussurienne men�s
par Ren� Amacker au long de sa carri�re � Gen�ve a pour objectif de
r�unir diff�rentes personnalit�s, d'horizons diff�rents, dans le but
de consid�rer l'oeuvre de Saussure dans le contexte actuel des
recherches en linguistique et en sciences du langage. Ferdinand de
Saussure a eu une importance extr�mement grande dans le domaine de
l'�pist�mologie et des m�thodologies en linguistique et en sciences
sociales de mani�re g�n�rale. Origine du courant structuraliste, le
"Cours de linguistique g�n�rale" pose les fondements de la s�miologie,
d�velopp�e par la suite par de tr�s nombreux chercheurs dans divers
domaines, de l'anthropologie structurale de Claude Levi-Strauss � la
psychanalyse de Lacan. Souvent mal compris, m�sinterpr�t�, tir vers des
directions dont la l�gitimit� fait parfois question, son apport se
devait d'�tre consid�r� en relation avec les paradigmes contemporains.

This colloquium, organized as a tribute to Ren� Amacker's contribution
during his career in the University of Geneva, aims to gather various
scholars in order to consider Saussure's work from the context of
current scientific research on language. Ferdinand de Saussure had a
great influence in the domains of epistemology and methodologies in
linguistics and social science in general. Seen as the origin of the
stucturalist trend, the "Course of General Linguistics" provides the
foundations for semiology, further developed by numerous scholars in
various fields in the humanities and social sciences, from
Levi-Strauss' structural anthropology to Lacan's psychanalysis. Often
misunderstood, misinterpreted, pulled towards more or less legitimate
consequences, Saussure's contribution had to be considered in relation
with contemporary paradigms.
