Summary/Abstract: The observations described in this paper are concerned with the linguistic discourse analysis carried out by representatives of the contemporary French school, the members of which include among others: Jean-Michel Adam, Patrick Charaudeau, Catherine Kerbrat-Orecchioni, and Dominique Maingueneau (some of them come from Swiss and Belgian French-speaking communities). The domain of their research, the most important traditions, as well as the sources of inspiration and relations between the examined field with other scientific disciplines (not only linguistics) are the principal subjects under discussion in this paper. The achievements of the French school in the area of discourse analysis prove the integrative nature of the discipline, which combines various fields of study of language, style and text, that is in particular: stylistics (including rhetoric and the theory of a literary work of art), pragmatics and text linguistics. The author demonstrates also the significance of the relations between discourse analysis and other sciences: philosophy, cognitive science, psychology and sociology, at the same time emphasizing that the broadly defined interdisciplinary studies remain (for various reasons) in the sphere of postulates. Among the many obstacles is the separation of social sciences in the 20th century.
