9780129301509: Marxism and the Philosophy of Language (Studies in Language, Vol. 1)

Volosinov's important work, first published in Russian in 1929, had to wait a generation for recognition. This first paperback edition of the English translation will be capital for literary theorists, philosophers, linguists, psychologists, and many others.

Volosinov is out to undo the old disciplinary boundaries between linguistics, rhetoric, and poetics in order to construct a new kind of field: semiotics or textual theory. Matejka and Titunik have provided a new preface to discuss Volosinov in relation to the great resurgence of interest in all the writing of the circle of Mikhail Bakhtin.

From the Back Cover:

'This book is a masterpiece of theoretical thought. It anticipates the actual achievements of much of what we now call sociolinguistics. The 'dialectic of the sign' and of the verbal sign in particular as it presented in the book acquires great suggestive value in the light of today's debates about semiotics.'--Roman Jakobson
