Descriptive semasiology was the area in the philosophy of language which A. Marty made the focus of his investigations. Their subject matter was the function or meaning of signs. Though some critics found their results to be logical in character, Marty insisted that the theoretical basis for his descriptive semasiology was descriptive psychology, not logic. His dismissal of the characterization of these investigations as logical, however, is based on the view that logic is a practical rather than a theoretical discipline. The author will argue that from a contemporary perspective logic as a theoretical discipline is indeed to be found in Marty’s descriptive semasiology, particularly in his concept of a content of judgment.
