Book Information


Title: Polemik und Argumentation in der Wissenschaft des 19. Jahrhunderts [Polemics and Argumentation in the Academic Discourse of the 19th Century]
Subtitle: Eine pragmalinguistische Untersuchung der Auseinandersetzung zwischen Carl Vogt und Rudolph Wagner um die 'Seele'
Written By: Steffen Haßlauer
Series Title: Reihe Germanistische Linguistik 291

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.
