Philosophical Languages in the Seventeenth Century: by Jaap Maat

By Jaap Maat

This ebook discusses 3 linguistic tasks performed within the 17th century: the substitute languages created by way of Dalgamo and Wilkins, and Leibniz's uncompleted scheme. It treats all the initiatives as self­ contained undertakings, which need to be studied and judged of their personal correct. hence, the 2 man made languages, in addition to Leib­ niz's paintings during this sector, are defined in substantial aspect. whilst, the features of those schemes are associated with their highbrow context, and their a number of interrelations are tested at a few size. during this method, the ebook seeks to mix a systematical with a ancient ap­ proach to the topic, within the desire that either techniques take advantage of the combo. while I first all started the examine on which this publication is predicated, I meant to seem in basic terms in brief into the seventeenth-century schemes, which i presumed represented a customary universalist method of the research of lan­ guage, in place of a relativistic one. The authors of those schemes concept, or so the idea was once, that nearly the one factor required for a very common language was once the systematic labelling of the goods of an it seems that available, common catalogue of every little thing that exists.
