About the Authors
  • 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. This 2002 volume begins with a lucid introduction by the editors Adriana Belletti and Luigi Rizzi. This is followed by some of Chomsky's writings on these themes, together with a penetrating interview in which Chomsky provides the clearest and most elegant introduction to current theory available. It should make his Minimalist Program accessible to all. The volume concludes with an essay on the role of intellectuals in society and government. Nature and Language is a significant landmark in the development of linguistic theory. It 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.

    • Brings together the recent writings of one of the most prominent thinkers of the twentieth century in a stunning collection, published here for the first time
    • Includes the clearest introduction available to his highly influential approach to linguistics
    • Penetrating accounts of language, mind and brain - it will appeal across linguistics, cognitive science and philosophy of mind
