 Abstract:
 
 Theory and history combine in this book to form a coherent narrative of the
 debates on language and languages in the Western world, from ancient
 classic philosophy to the present, with a final glance at on-going
 discussions on language as a cognitive tool, on its bodily roots and
 philogenetic role.
 
 An introductory chapter reviews the epistemological areas that converge
 into, or contribute to, language philosophy, and discusses their methods,
 relations, and goals. In this context, the status of language philosophy is
 discussed in its relation to the sciences and the arts of language. Each
 chapter is followed by a list of suggested readings that refer the reader
 to the final bibliography.
