Contemporary historical linguistics is characterized by basic instabilities
in its theoretical foundations. The studies in this volume both reveal and
question this theoretical instability. The authors reflect about the
potentials and limitations of different paths to knowledge, different
underlying theoretical and methodological principles, as well as about
those aspects of research on the history of language linked to the history
of science and epistemology.
