Until now an overview of the history of linguistics during the 20th centuryhas been lacking. With this book, Wolfgang Wildgen fills this gap. Startingwith the predecessors of Saussure, the main chapters highlight the mostimportant trends. Special attention is given to sustainable approaches.Wildgen also evaluates the yield of linguistic research and completes thebook by describing the challenges of the 21st century. An appendixdiscusses the problem of the mathematization of linguistics.
