Auteur: Collins, John
Sub titel: A guide for the perplexed
Noam Chomsky is a influential thinker of the twentieth-century. His work in linguistics, philosophy and political theory has spanned six decades, and has been met with critical acclaim and controversy in equal measure. This book is an introduction to Chomsky’s theoretical writings, but also a critical engagement with his work. `Chomsky: A Guide for the Perplexed' covers every aspect of Chomsky’s thought, from transformational grammar to political dissent. John Collins shows how Chomsky’s linguistic theory, philosophy and politics are all connected, and by so doing helps the reader to understand this key thinker’s massive contribution to twentieth-century thought. The book examines: the different faces of Noam Chomsky; transformational grammar; Chomsky’s opposition to behaviorism; government and binding theory; the minimalist program; and libertarian socialism.
