Лингвистика: гордость и предубеждение
The article considers the place of linguistics in the hierarchy of the humanities in different periods of time during the XX–XXI centuries. It is about the role of linguistics in the world, and its strengthening is associated with the development of interdisciplinary relations of various kinds. Interdisciplinarity may arise as a result of increasing interest in language, in linguistic methods, in the relationship between language and thought, society, and so on. The situation in the USSR is considered separately, where other factors, primarily the social context, contributed to the prestige of linguistics. It is noted that today linguistics has partially lost its high place in the hierarchy of the humanities.
