The Linguistic School of Geneva from 1900 to 1940 : Between expression and expressivity

It brings new light on the identity of this school through the comparative study of the theories developed by Charles Bally, Albert Sechehaye and Henri Frei between 1900 and 1940.

Pour penser une histoire du signe
Elements to a history of the sign
How can a music signify without text ? Instead of having a definite perspective, the book reconstructs the debates that happened. It elaborates families of thought and integrates the problem of the performer. Thus it opens the way to a comparative analysis of the styles, in their relation to an anthropology.
