2 Neil Smith
Chomsky: Ideas and Ideals
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2004; 0521546885 / 9780521546881; Second Edition; Paperback; New; 
Noam Chomsky is one of the leading intellectual figures of modern times. He has had a major influence on linguistics, psychology and philosophy, and a significant effect on many other disciplines, from anthropology to mathematics, education to literary criticism. In this rigorous yet accessible account of Chomsky’s work and influence, Neil Smith analyses Chomsky’s key contributions to the study of language and the study of mind. He gives a detailed exposition of Chomsky’s linguistic theorizing, discusses the psychological and philosophical implications of Chomsky’s work, and argues that he has fundamentally changed the way we think of ourselves, gaining a position in the history of ideas on a par with that of Darwin or Descartes. This second edition has been thoroughly updated to account for Chomsky’s most recent work, including his continued contributions to linguistics, his further discussion on evolution, and his extensive work on the events of September 11th, 2001. • A unique overview of all aspects of Chomsky’s work: linguistic, philosophical and political • A synthesis of 50 years’ revolutionary work into an easily understandable and coherent account of the century’s most widely cited thinker • Authoritative and up-to-date Contents 1. The mirror of the mind; 2. The linguistic foundation; 3. Psychological reality; 4. Philosophical realism: commitments and controversies; 5. Language and freedom. Printed Pages: 296. 012738

3 Noam Chomsky; Foreword By Neil Smith
New Horizons in the Study of Language and Mind
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2000; 0521658225 / 9780521658225; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
New Horizons in the Study of Language and Mind is an outstanding contribution to the philosophical study of language and mind, by one of the most influential thinkers of our time. In a series of penetrating essays, Chomsky cuts through the confusion and prejudice which has infected the study of language and mind, bringing new solutions to traditional philosophical puzzles and fresh perspectives on issues of general interest, ranging from the mind-body problem to the unification of science. Using a range of imaginative and deceptively simple linguistic analyses, Chomsky defends the view that knowledge of language is internal to the human mind. He argues that a proper study of language must deal with this mental construct. According to Chomsky, therefore, human language is a ‘biological object’ and should be analyzed using the methodology of the sciences. His examples and analyses come together in New Horizons in the Study of Language and Mind to give a unique and compelling perspective on language and the mind. • Written by Noam Chomsky, one of the most influential thinkers of our time • Explores the concept that knowledge of language is internal to the human brain (i.e. the concept of innate language) • Offers new solutions to - and fresh perspectives on - traditional philosophical puzzles and issues of general interest in the study of human language and the mind Contents Foreword by Neil Smith; Preface; Acknowledgements; 1. New horizons in the study of language; 2. Explaining language use; 3. Language and interpretation: philosophical reflections and empirical inquiry; 4.
