John Goldsmith – Battle in the Mind Fields

John Goldsmith (University of Chicago) has made a series of 10 videos – one for each chapter – about the book Battle in the Mind Fields, which he wrote with Bernard Laks (University of Paris) and published in 2019. A French version (Aux origines des sciences humaines: Linguistique, philosophie, logique, psychologie 1840–1940) is coming out from Gallimard in fall 2021.

You can find the first of John’s videos embedded below and all ten up on his YouTube channel.
