Noam Chomsky, uno de los pensadores más importantes de nuestro tiempo, reflexiona sobre la historia de la “gramática generativa” e integra cuestiones filosóficas y conceptuales con investigaciones empíricas. El estilo vivaz y seductor de Chomsky queda potenciado en un interesantísimo debate final con distinguidos profesores universitarios, que abarca la lingüística, la adquisición del lenguaje, la teoría del lenguaje y la mente.

Edited transcript of a 1996 lecture and discussion in India. Under 100 pages. Maybe Chomsky (wearing his linguistics hat, not his political one) could be likened to Wittgenstein, telling us late in life to forget about his elaborate earlier work. Read full review

About the author (2003)

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).
