Ferdinand de Saussure was born in Geneva, Switzerland. He was a Swiss linguist and semiotician whose ideas laid a foundation for many significant developments both in linguistics and semiology in the 20th century. He was awarded his doctorate at Leipzig in 1880, taught at the École Pratique des Hautes Études in Paris from 1881 to 1891, and taught subsequently at Geneva for the remainder of his career. He is widely considered one of the fathers of 20th-century linguistics and one of two major fathers of semiotics/semiology.
