Book Information


Title: The Cambridge Companion to Saussure
Edited By: Carol Sanders

This Companion offers an original new account of Ferdinand de Saussure,
widely considered to be the founder of modern Linguistics as well as
Structuralism. In addition to looking at his pioneering Course in General
Linguistics, contributors consider his lesser-known early work, more
recently-discovered manuscripts, and 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 Saussure's thought.
