Title: Controversy Spaces
Subtitle: A model of scientific and philosophical change
Edited By: Oscar Nudler
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/#catalog/books/cvs.10/main
Series Title: Controversies, 10
Description:

This work is a contribution to the philosophy and history of
various sciences, including linguistics. It introduces and provides
examples of application of a new model of the structure and dynamics of
science, namely, the model of controversy spaces. In the case of
linguistics, the model may be useful at least in two ways. First, to
reconstruct in a new, illuminating way the history of contemporary
linguistics or any of its branches. One of the case studies included in the
book undertakes such a task by focusing on the history of American
linguistics. Secondly, to provide a fresh, comprehensive look at the
present state of the field, its main features and trends. The notion of
"controversy space" and its associated notions provide a tool to achieve a
systematic description and ordering of the rich diversity of the debates going on
in the field.
