Title: New Horizons in the Study of Language and Mind
Written By: Noam Chomsky
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521658225
Description:

"What is impressive about Chomsky's writing is not just its awesome breadth and remarkable scope, but that after half a century he still has the power to surprise: from the observation that human beings are not a natural kind to the importance of Japanese for the analysis of English; from the rejection of his celebrated invention 'deep structure' to the conjecture that language, despite its biological nature, may be close to perfection; from the tension between common sense and science to the implications of what we know about a brown house or a cup of tea. Everything combines to give a unique and compelling view of language and mind." From the Foreword "...this is a very important book; not just because a lot of what it says is true, but also because Chomsky is a very important thinker." Jerry Fodor, The Times Literary Supplement "Highly recommended for all programs supporting a philosophy major or related work in linguistics and cognitive science." Choice "The essays are difficult, dense, and tremendously rewarding for the persevering reader." Virginia uarterly Review "At a time when various embarrassingly incompetent accounts of language are widespread in university humanities departments under such names as 'literary theory,' 'deconstruction,' and 'postmodernism' it is worth emphasizing that [Chomsky's] work in linguistics is at the highest intellectual level." The New York Review of Books
