McMaster Divinity College Linguistics Circle – Monthly Meeting
Presenter: Dr. Stanley Porter
Title: Karl Bühler and the Prague Linguistic Circle: An Unappreciated Story
We are already back for our March Linguistics Circle this week, Thursday, March 2, from 7-9pm as usual. For this meeting, Dr. Stanley Porter will be presenting a paper entitled “Karl Bühler and the Prague Linguistic Circle: An Unappreciated Story.” Bühler was a German psychologist and linguist who primarily taught psychology/psychiatry, but also did work in linguistics, including having an influence on the Prague Linguistics Circle. We anticipate an interesting discussion on this figure, who Porter states is underappreciated.
