Saussure's revolution is in making language relational into itself, it is not fixed nor predetermined, and it was now up to philosophy, sociology, linguistics and other adjacent fields to examine the manner in which a The book's main purpose is to explore whether the science of moral cognition is usefully modeled on aspects of Noam Chomsky's theory of Universal Grammar.
