Abstract:

This book presents a discussion by Noam Chomsky of some of the much
controversial issues raised within the scientific field of linguistics
since the inception of generative grammar in 1957. Based on the text of the
talk given by Noam Chomsky at Boğaziçi University, Istanbul, in 2002, the
book presents Professor Chomsky's views on the philosophical bases and the
historical development of the field of biolinguistics in the course of
which he focuses on issues such as cognition, linguistics as a science, how
the field developed, its nature and how it fits into the other domains of
science.

The questions raised within the question-comment session lead Professor
Chomsky to expand his views on the nature of Universal Grammar, in
particular on the philosophical underpinnings of the program which
disfavors the view that languages are radically different. Professor
Chomsky also answers questions on the implications of theory-internal
assumptions such as the determinants of phasehood in syntax, the nature of
the innateness hypothesis, the nature-nurture debate within language
acquisition, in particular the validity of the poverty of the stimulus
arguments, the nature of the semantic component and the representation of
the mental lexicon and the political implications of his Universal Grammar
position on his activist stance.
