    • Abstract:
      Since it had been established on new assumptions towards and as a specific yet discipline at the end of 18th in early 19th century in Germany, philology has passed a long way in the past two centuries. As a rather dynamic area of research it achieved, at first, some tremendous results, but it was gradually losing ground to ever more vigorous disciplines dedicated to study of Language and Literature - Linguistics and Literary Scholarship. The paper discusses some historical foundations and the depths of use of the very term "philology." It follows the views as expressed by the real founder of modern philology as the new area of academic expertise Friedrich August Wolf and his best student and follower Philipp August Boeckh, who has defined philology as the comprehensive knowledge of Antiquity (totius antiquitatis cognitio), or, as "the knowledge of the known, and, thus, as the study of language and literature, fine arts and politics, religion and social customs." The paper continues with the views of Rene Wellek and Austin Warren, who, in their critical works in 1940s and 1950s, somewhat re-defined it, and it deals with the attitudes in our time, when philology re-affirms itself as a much broader counterpart to "the science of language - linguistics." To some extent, the paper will also deal with the contribution of philology to more recent views on the scholarship of literature through a critical lense towards the term "science of literature." It will also offer some views on the future of philology in digital environment - the future that has already come into being. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
