Prawo negacji negacji w dziejach refleksji nad językiem naturalnym

Main Article Content

Władysław Zabrocki


The paper deals with the philosophical assumptions of linguistic theories. It is concerned with three paradigms of linguistic thought (generativist, structuralist, and historical-comparative). Its main thesis is a proposal to treat the psychological approach assumed by generativists as a peculiar dialectical transformation of the psychological assumptions of the historical-comparative linguistics.
