Por muy extensa que sea la produccion intelectual de un autor, su concepcion del mundo y sus ideas-guia pueden acotarse en una parte relativamente breve de su bibliografia, pero esa busqueda supone un arduo trabajo que, muchas veces, no es facil de acometer aunque solo sea por la dificultad que entrana disponer de todas las obras de un autor determinado. Sin embargo, desconocer esos marcos de reflexion intelectual supone, de un lado, una grave minusvalia para el desarrollo de nuestro propio pensamiento y, de otro, resignarse a una situacion de inferioridad cultural y emocional. &la" Obra esencial nace con la voluntad de facilitar un acceso inmediato, pero riguroso y exhaustivo, al corazon mismo de la creacion intelectual mas valiosa de todos los tiempos y, muy en especial, a la del siglo XX. Noam Chomsky replantea de raiz los acontecimientos mas cruciales de las ultimas tres decadas, desde las intervenciones exteriores de los Estados Unidos en Europa, Asia, America Latina y Oriente medio hasta la persistencia de la pobreza, el fanatismo religioso, el desmantelamiento del estado del bienestar, la lucha de los medios de comunicacion de masas contra el activismo politico o el control ideologico en la ensenanza de las ciencias y las humanidades.

About the author (2002)

Noam Avram Chomsky was born December 7, 1928, in Philadelphia. Son of a Russian emigrant who was a Hebrew scholar, Chomsky was exposed at a young age to the study of language and principles of grammar. During the 1940s, he began developing socialist political leanings through his encounters with the New York Jewish intellectual community. Chomsky received his Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania, where he studied linguistics, mathematics, and philosophy. He conducted much of his research at Harvard University. In 1955, he began teaching at MIT, eventually holding the Ferrari P. Ward Chair of Modern Language and Linguistics. Today Chomsky is highly regarded as both one of America's most prominent linguists and most notorious social critics and political activists. His academic reputation began with the publication of Syntactic Structures in 1957. Within a decade, he became known as an outspoken intellectual opponent of the Vietnam War. Chomsky has written many books on the links between language, human creativity, and intelligence, including Language and Mind (1967) and Knowledge of Language: Its Nature, Origin, and Use (1985). He also has written dozens of political analyses, including Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media (1988), Chronicles of Dissent (1992), and The Prosperous Few and the Restless Many (1993).
