Overview

Volume I of Edward Sapir’s Collected Works contains the reedition of Sapir’s papers and reviews in general linguistics, in the philosophy of language and linguistics (the origin of language; general semantics; the construction of an international auxiliary language), as well as his articles on ‘language’ and ‘dialect’ written for the Encyclopedia of Social Sciences. The texts have been reedited and supplied with an introductory study and notes. The introductory studies assess Sapir’s contribution to the linguistic study of the various topics dealt with. Volume I also contains a reprint of retrospective appraisals of Sapir’s work in general linguistics written by Zellig Harris and Stanley Newman.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Dans tous ses écrits, Sapir semble avoir poursuivi un but unique-, cetui de poser les fondemenis d,une approche structuraliste rigoureuse, permettant d'engloberàla fois la linguistique, l'anthropologie ei les autres sciences humaines et sociales, alliant dans l'entreprise l'intelligence, l'élégance et la curiosité du renardà la patience du hérisson."Alain Rouveret in: Bulletin de la Societe de Linguistique 2/2010
Booknews
This third volume of titled is divided into five sections. The first section contains Sapir's essays on theoretical and conceptual topics in cultural anthropology, psychology, and other social sciences, mostly published between 1917 and Sapir's death in 1939. This section includes two previously unpublished major papers from presentations at the 1926 and 1930 Hanover Conferences. The second section consists of an edited manuscript on the psychology of culture, based on student notes on the lectures Sapir intended to base a book upon but which he did not live to write. The third section contains Sapir's reviews of books in psychology and psychiatry, published between 1917 and 1928. Section Four contains his previously-published essays and book reviews on social and political topics of the day, written mainly for a general audience. The final section contains essays and reviews on music and contemporary literature, including a few previously unpublished pieces. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
