Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In On Nature and Language, Noam Chomsky develops his thinking on the relation between language, mind, and brain, integrating current research in linguistics into the burgeoning field of neuroscience.

Following a lucid introduction is a penetrating interview with Chomsky, in which he provides the clearest and most elegant introduction to current theory available. It makes his Minimalist Program accessible to all. The volume concludes with an essay on the role of intellectuals in society and government.

A significant landmark in the development of linguistic theory, On Nature and Language will be welcomed by students and researchers in theoretical linguistics, neurolinguistics, cognitive science and politics, as well as anyone interested in the development of Chomsky's thought.

Review:

"The varied collection of essays offers a unique introduction to the minimalist approach to linguistics, which views language as optimally enabling the brain to express thought....Recommended for academic libraries that support linguistics programs." Library Journal
