Book description

Noam Chomsky is one of the most influential thinkers of our time, yet his views are often misunderstood. In this previously unpublished series of interviews, Chomsky discusses his iconoclastic and important ideas concerning language, human nature and politics. In dialogue with James McGilvray, Professor of Philosophy at McGill University, Chomsky takes up a wide variety of topics – the nature of language, the philosophies of language and mind, morality and universality, science and common sense, and the evolution of language. McGilvray's extensive commentary helps make this incisive set of interviews accessible to a variety of readers. The volume is essential reading for those involved in the study of language and mind, as well as anyone with an interest in Chomsky's ideas.


‘This clear and relaxed conversation, illuminating for specialists and newcomers, locates Chomsky's linguistics within his larger conception of human inquiry. McGilvray asks the right questions and offers helpful editorial supplements.'

Paul M. Pietroski - University of Maryland

‘Noam Chomsky has long been recognized as a founding genius of modern linguistics. These compelling and carefully organized interviews illustrate why … The book is truly exceptional in affording an accessible and readable introduction to Chomsky’s broad-based and cutting-edge theorizing. A must-read!’

Robert J. Stainton - University of Western Ontario

‘An indispensable presentation, in engaging interview form, of Noam Chomsky’s evolving ideas about the scientific investigation of language and human nature, with illuminating explication by interviewer James McGilvray.’

Howard Lasnik - University of Maryland

‘By bringing the two sides of Chomsky’s career together in ways that his specialist works have eschewed, the conversations recorded in (this book) remind us that the ‘Chomsky problem’ is no individual foible, but the deepest ideological contradiction of our age.’
