Lectures on The Science of Language
by Max Mueller
Publisher: Charles Scribner 1862
Number of pages: 416
These lectures do not pretend to be more than an introduction to a science far too comprehensive to be treated successfully in so small a compass. My object will have been attained, if I should succeed in attracting the attention, not only of the scholar, but of the philosopher, the historian, and the theologian, to a science which concerns them all, and which, though it professes to treat of words only, teaches us that there is more in words than is dreamt of in our philosophy.
