Language : an introduction to the study of speech by Edward Sapir ( Book )
268 editions published between 1921 and 2014 in 14 languages and held by 3,251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This little book aims to give a certain perspective on the subject of language rather than to assemble facts about it. It has little to say of the ultimate psychological basis of speech and gives only enough of the actual descriptive or historical facts of particular languages to illustrate principles. Its main purpose is to show what the author conceives language to be, what is its variability in place and time, and what are its relations to other fundamental human interests--the problem of thought, the nature of the historical process, race, culture, art. The perspective thus gained will be useful, the author hopes, both to linguistic students and to the outside public that is half inclined to dismiss linguistic notions as the private pedantries of essentially idle minds"--Preface.

The psychology of culture : a course of lectures by Edward Sapir ( Book )
31 editions published between 1993 and 2002 in English and held by 689 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This work presents Sapir's most comprehensive statement on the concept of culture, on method and theory in anthropology and other social sciences, on personality organization, and on the individual's place in culture and society. Extensive discussions of the role of language and other symbolic systems in culture, ethnographic method, and social interaction are also included. Ethnographic and linguistic examples are drawn from Sapir's fieldwork among North American Indians and from European and American society as well. Edward Sapir (1884-1939) was one of the leading figures in American anthropology and linguistics in the twentieth century, and he planned to publish a major theoretical statement on culture and psychology. He developed his ideas in a course of lectures he presented at Yale University in the 1930s, which attracted a wide audience from many social science disciplines. Unfortunately, he died before the book he had contracted to publish could be realized. Like de Saussure's Cours de Linguistique Generale before it, this work has been reconstructed from student notes, in this case 22 sets, as well as from Sapir's manuscript materials. Judith Irvine's meticulous reconstruction makes Sapir's compelling ideas - of surprisingly contemporary resonanceavailable for the first time
Culture by Edward Sapir ( Book )
43 editions published between 1967 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Edward Sapir was one of those men, rare among scientists and scholars, who are spoken of by their colleagues in terms of genius. His writings on frontier problems in cultural anthropology, psychology, and linguistics are outstanding for their provocative insights and remarkable control of factual data. His long essay on language, his principal field of study, is an illuminating exploration of various aspects of the subject. His stress on the fact that language is a cultural or social product helped to make linguistics an integral part of the study of man. The interplay of culture and personality was a field where Sapir was a pioneer and many of his essays have become classics in the social sciences
