 DESCRIPTION
spacer
Rousseau, in this book, tells us that historical and psychological problem gave birth to language and the problem of acquiring and learning of language. His approach to language is 'romantic' in many respects, but it cannot be aligned with any simplistic opposition in intellectual history. Rousseau stresses the expressive power of language in his version of the 'genie des language', and in his account of the connection between language and the passions and of the importance of metaphor. But, he does not reject the thesis of the arbitrariness of the linguistic sign or the central denotatory function of language.
