260 Moravcsik, J. M. THOUGHT AND LANGUAGE
London Routledge 1990 0415043220 / 9780415043229 Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket 
Very light shelfwear to book and DJ. ; Ix, 283pp. In this examination of the bases of thought and language, Professor Julius Moravcsik explores recent approaches to these topics and discusses the philosophical assumptions behind theories of language. He puts forward a new theory of meaning that is also a proposal about human concepts: viewing meanings as explanatory schemata and interpreting human cognition as primarily explanation-seeking, rather than information processing. This view of cognition, Professor Moravcsik argues, need not commit itself to either dualism or materialism. He defends the Platonic assumptions of his proposal, showing them to be no less "scientific" than current fashionable alternatives. Professor Moravcsik explores new ways of philosophizing that differ from analytic philosophy and its continental alternatives, and indicates how philosophers today can construct proposals about thought and language that have both conceptual and empirical import. This book should be of interest to students and teachers of philosophy of language and philosophy of mind, and advanced students of cognitive science and linguistics. ; 283 pages

273 Olender, Maurice & Arthur Goldhammer (Trans. ) THE LANGUAGES OF PARADISE Race, Religion, and Philology in the Nineteenth Century
Harvard University Press 1992 0674510526 / 9780674510524 Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good+ dust jacket 
Former owner's name in pencil and blindstamp to ffep. Else book is fine. DJ spine sunned. ; The comparative study of languages was inspired by Renaissance debates over what language was spoken in the Garden of Eden. By the eighteenth century scholars were persuaded that European languages shared a common ancestor. With the adoption of positivist, “scientific” methods in the nineteenth century, the hunt for the language of Eden and the search for a European Ursprache diverged. Yet the desire to reconcile historical causality with divine purpose remained. Because the Indo-European languages clearly had a separate line of descent from the biblical tongues, the practitioners of the new science of philology (many of whom had received their linguistic training from the Church) turned their scholarship to the task of justifying the ascendance of European Christianity to the principal role in Providential history. To accomplish this they invented a pair of concepts? Aryan and Semitic? That by the end of the century had embarked on ideological and political careers far outside philology. Supposed characteristics of the respective languages were assigned to the peoples who spoke them: thus the Semitic peoples (primarily the Jews) were, like their language, passive, static, and immobile, while the Aryans (principally Western Europeans) became the active, dynamic Chosen People of the future. Olender traces the development of these concepts through the work of J. G. Herder, Ernest Renan, Friedrich Max Müller, Adolphe Pictet, Rudolph Grau, and Ignaz Goldziher. He shows that, despite their different approaches, each of these men struggled more or less purposefully “to join romanticism with positivism in an effort to preserve a common allegiance to the doctrines of Providence. ”; 228 pages
