Description - Grammar in Early Twentieth-Century Philosophy by Richard Gaskin
This text presents a systematic and historical exploration of the philosophical significance of grammar. In the first half of the 20th century, and in particular in the writings of Frege, Husserl, Russell, Carnap and Wittgenstein, there was sustained philosophical reflection on the nature of grammar, and on the relevance of grammar to metaphysics, logic and science. This book looks at the nature of such thinking.
