Words Upon Words the Anagrams of Ferdinand De Saussure: By Jean Starobinski. Translated by Olivia Emmet. New Haven. Yale University Press: 1979. Pp. 129.

Review by:
M. Masud R. Khan

Professor Jean Starobinski is a scholar of singular quality. I know of no other person who is a Doctor of Medicine, a man of letters, a linguist and a profound writer on the sociology of art. His escalating spread of knowledge and scholarship is matched only by his willfulness not to become a cult figure, even though he himself specializes in the interpretation of cult-figures, like Jean-Jacques Rousseau.

Jean Starobinski, among his other professorial appointments, holds the permanent one on the Faculte des Lettres, University of Geneva. It was to be expected that Professor Starobinski would one day address himself to the question of language, discourse and semantics.
