The Minimalism Program is many things to many researchers, and there are by
now many alternative versions of it. Central to all is the fundamental
question: to what extent is the human language faculty an optimal solution
to minimal design specifications. Taken as a whole, the volume outlines the
main features of Minimalism, its historical and conceptual sources, and
provides an illustration of minimalist theorizing by looking at several
properties of the syntactic component of grammar. Some contributions
concentrate on what kind of computational tools are made available in a
minimalist syntactic component, and how the computational system interacts
with external and interface domains of the mind/brain. Other contributions
specifically focus on direct empirical gains that emerge from adopting
minimalist guidelines.
