Brain hoes his row in this article, presenting a cogent and focused thesis on how the late nineteenth-century linguistique was conceived as an explicit answer to German philology, vaulting French science ahead of its rival after the Franco-Prussian War by rejecting Schlegelian Volkgeister and the primacy of the written text for a focus on instrumental data from spoken language, garnered by the new phonetics labs, and an emergent return to the understanding of the arbitrariness of the sign, reaching back to the eighteenth century as well as forward, and setting the stage for Saussure. There is perhaps too much focus on the ins and outs of each of the historical machines, which even in the specialist context has to be a niche interest. In Lenoir and Ulrich, Inscribing Science: Scientific Texts and the Materiality of Communication. ( )
