"The Power of Words is a profoundly original masterpiece that completely changes our understanding of language from its very foundations. There are perhaps only a handful of books that have altered our entire formulation of language itself, and this book is one of them. In a very clear sense, it opens up a new science of language. From the first page, one enters an extraordinarily original world of concepts and analytic tools, that are used to reveal language as a more powerful means of action than has been previously grasped. One can literally say that, in the hands of David Kaufer and his colleagues, language becomes a new phenomenon. In summary: This is a monumental contribution-one of the few revolutions in our understanding of language-and will become not only a classic masterpiece in the humanities, but a major source for the expansion of scientific research into language, leading to substantial improvement in the linguistic capacities of computers." --Professor Michael Leyton Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey" --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
