    of thought in

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to explain to me in plain English the meaning of the expression in bold in the following sentences?

    He belongs to a new school of thought in linguistics.

    Constructivism is the title that Deleuze uses to characterize the movement of thought in philosophy.

    Re: of thought in

    I'd venture the assertion that it means "ideology".

    Hi Bennevis,

    Thank you for your first try.

    I donít know how to put in words my intuitive speculation about the meaning of the expression in question.

    of though in = specialized in, with specialization in , with specialism in

    Thank you again for your kindness.

    Re: of thought in

    "School of thought" and "movement of thought" are the expressions.

    A school of thought is a particular group of people and the teachings they adhere to.

    School of thought - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    "Movement of thought" is the evolution of thinking on a particular subject or within a particular discipline.

    Your examples speak of the "school of thought" involved in the field of linguistics and the "movement of thought" in the field of philosophy.
