On Nature and Language

Noam Chomsky, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA

Editors
Adriana Belletti, Universit� degli Studi di Siena, Siena, Italy
Luigi Rizzi, Universit� degli Studi di Siena, Siena, Italy

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. Following a lucid introduction is a penetrating
interview with Chomsky, in which he provides the clearest and most
elegant introduction to current theory available. It makes his
Minimalist Program accessible to all. The volume concludes with an
essay on the role of intellectuals in society and government. A
significant landmark in the development of linguistic theory, On
Nature and Language 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.

Noam Chomsky is Professor of Linguistics at the Massachusetts
Institute of Technology. Chomsky has written and lectured extensively
on philosophy, intellectual history, and international affairs. His
works include The Architecture of Language, Aspects of the Theory of
Syntax; Cartesian Linguistics; Language and Mind; American Power and
the New Mandarins; At War with Asia; For Reasons of State; Peace in
the Middle East? Reflections on Language; Rules and Representations;
The Culture of Terrorism; Rethinking Camelot; JFKm the Vietnam War and
US Political Culture; World Orders, Old and New and The Common Good.
