Through stimulating critical perspectives and new cross-disciplinary frameworks, which reflect recent innovations in the social and human sciences, this series provides a forum for politically engaged and theoretically imaginative responses to these important issues of late modernity.

Bringing together the research fields of sign language linguistics and information structure, this book focuses on the realization of modal and focus particles in German Sign Language, Sign Language of the Netherlands, and Irish Sign Language. The study analyzes professionally elicited data with regard to nonmanual features expressed by articulators such as the body, head, and face, and accounts for the results within existing theoretical models. The analyses contribute to recent debates about information structure and the syntax-prosody interface. Thus, this book is of special interest to both sign and spoken language linguists.
Twardowski's little book - of which I here offer a translation - is one of the most remarkable works in the history of modern philosophy. It is concise, clear, and - in Findlay's words - "amazingly rich in ideas. "l It is therefore a paradigm of what some contemporary philosophers approvingly call "analytic philosophy. " But Twardowski's book is also of considerable historical significance. His views reflect Brentano's earÂ lier position and thus shed some light on this stage of Brentano's philoÂ sophy. Furthermore, they form a link between this stage, on the one hand, and those two grandiose attempts to propagate rationalism in an age of science, on the other hand, which are known as Meinong's theory of entities and HusserI's phenomenology. Twardowski's views thus point to the future and introduce many of the problems which, through the influence of Meinong, HusserI, Russell, and Moore, have become standard fare in contemporary philosophy. In this introducÂ tion, I shall call attention to the close connection between some of Twardowski's main ideas and the corresponding thoughts of these four philosophers. 1. IDEAS AND THEIR INTENTIONS Twardowski's main contention is clear. He claims that we must disÂ tinguish between the act, the content, and the object of a presentation. The crucial German term is 'V orstellung. ' This term has a corresponding verb and allows for such expressions as 'das V orgestellte.
