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."

Series Title: Reihe Germanistische Linguistik 291
Description:

Carl Vogt’s quarrel with Rudolph Wagner is considered to be a culmination
of the materialism dispute in the 19th century. Out of this basically
academic issue on the nature of human mental functions, a personal dispute
quickly developed which was unrivalled in thematic incisiveness and
expression. The aim of this study is the detailed linguistic analysis of
the polemics and argumentation in this dispute based on extensive text
excerpts, in which for the first time detailed linguistic studies on Vogt
and Wagner are presented.
