Abstract:

This work is a contribution to the philosophy and history ofvarious sciences, including linguistics. It introduces and providesexamples of application of a new model of the structure and dynamics ofscience, namely, the model of controversy spaces. In the case oflinguistics, the model may be useful at least in two ways. First, toreconstruct in a new, illuminating way the history of contemporarylinguistics or any of its branches. One of the case studies included in thebook undertakes such a task by focusing on the history of Americanlinguistics. Secondly, to provide a fresh, comprehensive look at thepresent state of the field, its main features and trends. The notion of"controversy space" and its associated notions provide a tool to achieve asystematic description and ordering of the rich diversity of the debates going onin the field.
