On Language: Chomsky's Classic Works, Language and Responsibility and Reflections on Language in One Volume Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Two of Chomsky's most famous and accessible works available in an affordable and attractive edition.

Described by the New York Times as "arguably the most important intellectual alive," Noam Chomsky is known throughout the world for his highly influential writings on language and politics. Featuring two of Chomsky's most popular and enduring books in one omnibus volume, On Language contains some of the noted linguist and political critic's most informal and accessible work to date, making it an ideal introduction to his thought.

In Part I, Language and Responsibility (1979), Chomsky presents a fascinating self-portrait of his political, moral, and linguistic thinking through a series of interviews with Mitsou Ronat, the noted French linguist. In Part II, Reflections on Language (1975), Chomsky explores the more general implications of the study of language and offers incisive analyses of the controversies among psychologists, philosophers, and linguists over fundamental questions of language.

Synopsis:

Two of Chomsky's most famous and accessible works, back in print in one affordable, attractive edition.
