Linguistics and Epistemological Break (in Arabic)

Auther : Abdull Salam Al-Mesadi

The history of science has often been equated with that of scientists, and has sometimes been associated with the history of the theoretical trends which happened to mark its evolutionary phases. Yet, from epistemological perspectives, it clearly appears that the real history of is rather that of the error and misassumption which led to the re-examination and questioning of the methods being employed.

In line with this assumption, the present article will proceed to a historical survey of modern linguistics, and will try to determine the turning points which marked its course and development. Along with this, an attempt will be made to check the validity and pertinence of the Bachelarian concept of epistemological break.

Thus, in a first part, a set of primary hypotheses will be formulated for the purpose of identifying the issues likely to be involved in any critical approach. Following this, the article will investigate the factors underlying the lack of any epistemological reflection in the works of modern Arab linguists. At a further stage, the determining phases in the evolution of modern linguistics will be presented. Then, in conformity with the theoretical tenets of the notion of methodological break, the fourth part will attempt to explain the emergence of modern linguistics. Last, the article will tackle the limitations which led to the elaboration of the generative theory and to the appearance of cognitive linguistics.
