The Indo-European Controversy: Facts and Fallacies in Historical Linguistics

By Asya Pereltsvaig and Martin W. Lewis

This book "asserts that the origin and spread of languages must be examined primarily through the time-tested techniques of linguistic analysis, rather than those of evolutionary biology" and "defends traditional practices in historical linguistics while remaining open to new techniques, including computational methods" and "will appeal to readers interested in world history and world geography."

Title: Diagrammatology
Subtitle: An Investigation on the Borderlines of Phenomenology, Ontology, and Semiotics
Edited By: Frederik Stjernfelt
URL: http://www.springer.com/978-1-4020-5651-2
Series Title: Synthese Library
Description:

Diagrammatology investigates the role of diagrams for thought and
knowledge. Based on the general doctrine of diagrams in Charles Peirce's
mature work, Diagrammatology claims diagrams to constitute a centerpiece of
epistemology. The book reflects Peirce's work on the issue in Husserl's
contemporanous doctrine of "categorial intuition" and charts the many
unnoticed similarities between Peircean semiotics and early Husserlian
phenomenology. Diagrams, on a Peircean account, allow for observation and
experimentation with ideal structures and objects and thus furnish the
access to the synthetic a priori of the regional and formal ontology of the
Husserlian tradition.

The second part of the book focusses on three regional branches of
semiotics: biosemiotics, picture analysis, and the theory of literature.
Based on diagrammatology, these domains appear as accessible for a
diagrammatological approach which leaves the traditional relativism and
culturalism of semiotics behind and hence constitutes a realist semiotics.
