Problems of Methodology and Philosophy in Linguistics


Ireneusz Bobrowski

The book is not only dedicated to linguists, but also to readers who are not familiar with notations developed in linguistics. The first part of the study presents philosophical justifications for linguistic settlements. These are based on the phenomenological reduction of Edmund Husserl, Karl R. Popper’s falsificationism, the moderate rationalism of science of Izydora Dąmbska and Andrzej Bogusławski’s lack of the nomological explanation in linguistics. The second part presents a re-examination of the solutions proposed in the field of linguistics, some new philosophical explanations and a discussion of the truth of linguistic propositions.

Part Two: In the Foreground or Disintegration

The relatively incisive and integrated image of linguistics, which I presented in the first part of this book, in the new millennium begins to become blurry and disintegrated. In this part of the book I shall try to present the causes of the process of blurring and disintegration, but also attempts of finding new solutions and their justifications within the range of methodology of linguistics as well as – perhaps above all else – their philosophical foundation.

I wish to let the reader know in advance that the disintegration to which my system of linguistic views has been subjected is not of a destructive character. I believe that I can describe it with the attribute positive. ← 105 | 106 →← 106 | 107 →
