Language and Political Theory

This study is divided into 5 major headings or chapters: (1) logical positivism and linguistic analysis; (2) ordinary language philosophy; (3) phenomenology, existentialism, and hermeneutics; (4) linguistic structuralism; and, (5) critical social theory. A major question to be investigated is: What is the significance of language—or of a given conception of language-—for the basic meaning of politics or political life? The focus on language can be seen as the unifying bond linking contemporary philosophical trends in America, England, and on the European continent.
