520 8  The Semantics of Science proposes a radical new rethinking
       of science and scientific discourse. Roy Harris argues 
       that supercategories such as science, art, religion and 
       history are themselves verbal constructs, and thus 
       language-dependent. Because each supercategory is 
       constructed differently, it is necessary to pay attention 
       to the linguistic process by which a discourse such as 
       'science' has developed. Through this view it is possible 
       to observe that the function of the supercategory is to 
       integrate what would otherwise be separate activities and 
       enquiries, and the result of this integration is therefore
       a re-drawing of the intellectual world that society as a 
       whole adopts. In the course of his study of The Semantics 
       of Science Roy Harris looks at the history and development
       of scientific discourse to show through language that what
       is meant by science has changed since it was first 
       theorised by the Greeks. Harris traces the semantic 
       development of 'science' through the years of the Royal 
       Society to the present day, moving on to an analysis of 
       rhetoric, mathematics, common sense and finally the 
       supercategory of semantics. This lucidly written yet 
       radical new theory on the language of science will be 
       fascinating reading for academics and students researching
       semantics, semiotics or applied linguistics.>
