What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"When intellectual histories of the twentieth century are written, Noam Chomsky will surely be acknowledged as one of its major figures. Given his enormous influence, it is imperative that Chomsky's ideas be scrutinized, and I can't think of a better arena than this book, in which Chomsky and his critics are given the elbow room to work out their disagreements with the subtlety and depth that they deserve." Steven Pinker, MIT, and author of The Language Instinct

"More than forty years ago, Noam Chomsky began a revolution in the way that philosophers think about the mind and about language. The essays in this fine volume make it clear that the Chomskian revolution is still very much underway and that we are far from agreement on the implications of Chomsky’s work. These cutting-edge essays – and Chomsky’s characteristically insightful replies – are full of fresh insights and acute arguments. They are essential reading for anyone interested in the extraordinary impact Chomsky has had on philosophy." Stephen Stich, Rutgers University

"This is a first-rate volume for advanced students and scholars in philosophy, linguistics, and cognitive science that will advance understanding of Chomsky's work for years to come." Choice

"This is a first-rate volume for advanced students and scholars in philosophy, linguistics, and cognitive science that will advance understanding of Chomsky's work for years to come." Choice, December 2003
