Language : an introduction to the study of speech by Edward Sapir ( Book )
166 editions published between 1921 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 2,896 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.

Review text: "Dans tous ses écrits, Sapir semble avoir poursuivi un but unique-, cetui de poser les fondemenis d,une approche structuraliste rigoureuse, permettant d'engloberàla fois la linguistique, l'anthropologie ei les autres sciences humaines et sociales, alliant dans l'entreprise l'intelligence, l'élégance et la curiosité du renardà la patience du hérisson."Alain Rouveret in: Bulletin de la Societe de Linguistique 2/2010
The psychology of culture : a course of lectures by Edward Sapir ( Book )
25 editions published between 1993 and 2002 in English and held by 593 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This work presents Sapir's most comprehensive statement on the concepts 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 on 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 native North Americans and from European and American society as well.
