The Platonist view in philosophy of linguistics states that grammars are theories of abstract objects. In this paper I will focus on the Platonist view in philosophy of linguistics as stated in Katz’s 'An Outline of Platonist Grammar' (1984) and Soames’ 'Linguistics and Psychology' (1984) and 'Semantics and Psychology' (1985). I will begin explaining which are the core ideas of the Platonist view in philosophy of linguistics. Then, I will comment on the argument offered by Katz’s in order to argue for the Platonist view. Finally, I will explain Soames’ arguments in order to show that psychology and linguistics are conceptually and empirically different ​
