Debate on Louis Hjelmslev’s “Prolegomena to a Theory of Language”

The upcoming meeting at Book City Institute on Tuesday will be on “Prolegomena to a Theory of Language,” the magnum opus of great Danish linguist Louis Hjelmslev (1899-1965).
In 1943, the book came out to represent a breakthrough in linguistics and formed an entirely new branch in the field. The author begins by ascertaining that language is an inexhaustible wealth of manifold values; language is the tool with which man moulds thought and feeling, mood, hope, will and action, the tool with which he influences and is influenced, the last and deepest condition of human society.
