  Philology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Philology thus comprises the study of the grammar, rhetoric, history, interpretation of authors, and critical traditions associated with a given language.
In its more restricted sense of "historical linguistics", philology was one of the 19th century's first scientific approaches to human language but gave way to the modern science of linguistics in the early 20th century due to the influence of Ferdinand de Saussure, who argued that the spoken language should have primacy.
Philology's interest in ancient languages led to the study of what were in the 18th century "exotic" languages for the light they could cast on problems in understanding and deciphering the origins of older texts.

 A Requiem for Philology
Philology is a word of ancient tradition, it emerged in the academic world of Alexandria over two thousand years ago, but went into a long coma when the Greco-Roman world slowly declined.
The awakening came in the late l8th century, when the word Philology was brought into life again by F.A. Wolf who saw it as a discipline unifying many new methods of investigation which were emerging as the pioneer work of scientists concerned with electricity, biology, and mechanics.
This was a type of linguistic philology closely connected with the Classics, but a few years later it was renamed Comparative Philology as better describing the methodology, and later as it broadened it became Comparative Linguistics, although elsewhere called Historical Linguistics.

 Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2001.06.06
Nietzsche's critical philology comes from his ability to face problems and contradictions in the discipline that his colleagues were aware of but tried--desperately and often tellingly--to avoid.
The upshot again is that Nietzsche's philology, as a critical philology, is in fact a critique of culture, as this is refracted through classical antiquity, through modern philology's imagining of classical antiquity, and through modernity itself.
The result is that it is difficult to discern when Porter's own philology is being cynical, tactical, and critical, and when it is itself merely symptomatically displaying the contradictions he argues are present in all philology that looks towards the past to explain the present.

 LINGUIST List 9.741: Philology vs. Linguistics
Philology is essentially the study of texts, for whatever purpose the investigator has in mind.
Also, the texts are nearly always pre-modern (the author[s]--and often the languages--are generally dead), and the investigation can, and often does, use practically any disciplinary approach known to modern academia--from anthropology to zoology--in order to elucidate the texts and languages of the texts.
Conclusions drawn from this empirical study are often used by philologists in "comparative philology" or "historical-comparative philology," a sub-branch of the field which is, essentially, pure linguistics (I'm coming to that).

 Julian Kücklich: The Road Less Traveled - The Case for Computer Game Philology
For Aarseth, this failure to adapt semiotic theory to the requirements of digital semiosis appears as a failure of semiotics in general, and he concludes his critique of Andersen's work by stating that his approach is flawed because he does not take the "mathematical reality beneath the surface" (39) into account.
This approach is guided by the idea that literary theory is, at its core, a theory of interaction between the human mind and a meaningful array of signs, constituting a semiotic process in which the materiality of these signs is secondary.
Obviously, computer game philology is far from being a "finished" theoretical framework, just as every theoretical undertaking is always a work-in-progress as long as it is alive and growing.

 The Hindu : Philology vanished: Frawley's Rigveda — I
Philology is the investigation of a civilisation based on its texts; it takes into account all necessary information from other sciences, from astronomy to zoology.
Our aim should be to represent what the authors of the texts themselves thought, the "spirit of the times," not what we (want to) see in them now.
Our personal and civilisational maayaa has to be overcome by using philology: by constantly re-examining proposals, by countercheck of other possibilities, and by well-founded worldwide peer criticism.
