Michael Forster explores the historical roots of philosophy of language, which he traces to German thinkers of the 18th century, among whom J. G. Herder is the key figure. Herder established fundamental principles concerning thought, meaning, and language, founded the disciplines of anthropology and linguistics, and has much still to teach us.
