Language and mind by Noam Chomsky( Book )

211 editions published between 1968 and 2015 in 15 languages and held by 5,422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents the third edition of Chomsky's collection of essays on language and mind. The first six chapters, originally published in the 1960s, made a groundbreaking contribution to linguistic theory. This edition complements them with an additional chapter and a new preface, bringing Chomsky's approach into the twenty-first century. Chapters 1-6 present Chomsky's early work on the nature and acquisition of language as a genetically endowed, biological system (Universal Grammar), through the rules and principles of which we acquire an internalized knowledge (I-language). Over the past fifty years, this framework has sparked inquiry into a wide range of languages, and has yielded some major theoretical questions. The final chapter revisits the key issues, reviewing the 'biolinguistic' approach that has guided Chomsky's work from its origins to the present day, and raising some challenges for the study of language and mind. --Adapted from publisher description
Syntactic structures by Noam Chomsky( Book )

306 editions published between 1954 and 2020 in 13 languages and held by 4,220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Noam Chomsky's first book on syntactic structures is one of the first serious attempts on the part of a linguist to construct within the tradition of scientific theory-construction a comprehensive theory of language which may be understood in the same sense that a chemical, biological theory is understood by experts in those fields. It is not a mere reorganization of the data into a new kind of library catalogue, nor another specualtive philosophy about the nature of man and language, but rather a rigorus explication of our intuitions about our language in terms of an overt axiom system, the t
Aspects of the theory of syntax by Noam Chomsky( Book )

295 editions published between 1964 and 2015 in 9 languages and held by 3,649 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beginning in the mid-fifties and emanating largely from MIT, an approach was developed in linguistic theory and the study of the structure of languages that diverges in many respects from modern linguistics. Although this approach is connected to the traditional study of languages, it differs enough in its specific conclusions about the structure of language to warrant a name, "generative grammar." Various deficiencies have been discovered in the first attempts to formulate a theory of transformational generative grammar and in the descriptive analysis of the languages that motivated these formulations. At the same time, it has become apparent that these formulations can be extended and deepened. The major purpose of this book is to review these developments and to propose a reformulation of the theory of transformational generative grammar that takes them into account. The emphasis in this study is syntax; semantic and phonological aspects of the language structure are discussed only insofar as they bear on syntactic theory. -- Publisher description
Cartesian linguistics : a chapter in the history of rationalist thought by Noam Chomsky( Book )

91 editions published between 1966 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 3,475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this original and profound work, Noam Chomsky discusses themes in the study of language and mind since the end of the sixteenth century in order to explain the motivations and methods that underlie his work in linguistics, the science of mind, and even politics. This edition includes a new and specially written introduction by James McGilvray, contextualising the work for the twenty-first century. It has been made more accessible to a larger audience; all the French and German in the original edition has been translated, and the notes and bibliography have been brought up to date. The relationship between the original edition (published in 1966) and contemporary biolinguistic work is also explained. This challenging volume is an important contribution to the study of language and mind, and to the history of these studies since the end of the sixteenth century."--BOOK COVER

Manufacturing consent : the political economy of the mass media by Edward S Herman( Book )

105 editions published between 1988 and 2021 in 6 languages and held by 2,916 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: In this path breaking work, now with a new introduction, Edward S. Herman and Noam Chomsky show that, contrary to the usual image of the news media as cantankerous, obstinate, and ubiquitous in their search for truth and defense of justice, in their actual practice they defend the economic, social, and political agendas of the privileged groups that dominate domestic society, the state, and the global order. Based on a series of case studies-including the media's dichotomous treatment of "worthy" versus "unworthy" victims, "legitimizing" and "meaningless" Third World elections, and devastating critiques of media coverage of the U.S. wars against Indochina-Herman and Chomsky draw on decades of criticism and research to propose a Propaganda Model to explain the media's behavior and performance. Their new introduction updates the Propaganda Model and the earlier case studies, and it discusses several other applications. These include the manner in which the media covered the passage of the North American Free Trade Agreement and subsequent Mexican financial meltdown of 1994-1995, the media's handling of the protests against the World Trade Organization, World Bank, and International Monetary Fund in 1999 and 2000, and the media's treatment of the chemical industry and its regulation. What emerges from this work is a powerful assessment of how propagandistic the U.S. mass media are, how they systematically fail to live up to their self-image as providers of the kind of information that people need to make sense of the world, and how we can understand their function in a radically new way
On nature and language by Noam Chomsky( )

64 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in 9 languages and held by 2,580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher's description: 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. The volume begins with a lucid introduction by the editors Adriana Belletti and Luigi Rizzi. This is followed by some of Chomsky's recent writings on these themes, together with a penetrating interview in which Chomsky provides the clearest and most elegant introduction to current theory available. It should make his Minimalist Program accessible to all. The volume concludes with an essay on the role of intellectuals in society and government. Nature and Language is a significant landmark in the development of linguistic theory. It 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
Hegemony or survival : America's quest for global dominance by Noam Chomsky( Book )

71 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book Noam Chomsky offers an analysis of America's pursuit of total domination and the catastrophic consequences that follow. The United States is in the process of staking out not just the globe but the last unarmed spot in our neighborhood-the heavens-as a militarized sphere of influence. Our earth and its skies are, for the Bush administration, the final frontiers of imperial control. In Hegemony or survival, Noam Chomsky investigates how we came to this moment, what kind of peril we find ourselves in, and why our rulers are willing to jeopardize the future of our species. Chomsky dissects America's quest for global supremacy, tracking the U.S. government's aggressive pursuit of policies intended to achieve "full spectrum dominance" at any cost. He lays out how the various strands of policy-the militarization of space, the ballistic-missile defense program, unilateralism, the dismantling of international agreements, and the response to the Iraqi crisis-cohere in a drive for hegemony that ultimately threatens our survival. In our era, he argues, empire is a recipe for an earthly wasteland

117 editions published between 1901 and 2019 in 8 languages and held by 2,505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

New horizons in the study of language and mind by Noam Chomsky( )

46 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 2,437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a series of 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 simple linguistic analyses, Chomsky argues that there is no coherent notion of "language" external to the human mind, and that the study of language should take as its focus the mental construct which constitutes our knowledge of language. Human language is therefore a psychological, ultimately a "biological object," and should be analyzed using the methodology of the natural sciences. His examples and analyses come together in this book to give a unique perspective on language and the mind."--Jacket

Reflections on language by Noam Chomsky( Book )

136 editions published between 1975 and 2011 in 10 languages and held by 2,359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Comment un individu, à partir de données très limitées, peut-il développer un savoir aussi riche que le langage? L'enfant, immergé dans une communauté linguistique, est confronté à un ensemble très restreint de phrases souvent imparfaites, inachevées. Néanmoins, il parvient à "construire" la grammaire de sa langue, à développer une maîtrise très complexe que l'expérience seule ne peut induire. En étudiant les problèmes posés par l'acquisition du langage, Chomsky rejette les spéculations empiristes et insiste sur les nécessités biologiques qui a priori déterminent le système cognitif

Failed states : the abuse of power and the assault on democracy by Noam Chomsky( Book )

57 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 1,928 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The United States has repeatedly asserted its right to intervene militarily against "failed states" around the globe. Chomsky turns the tables, charging the United States with being a "failed state," and therefore a danger to its own people and the world. "Failed states," Chomsky writes, are those "that do not protect their citizens from violence and perhaps even destruction, that regard themselves as beyond the reach of domestic or international law, and that suffer from a 'democratic deficit, ' having democratic forms but with limited substance." Exploring recent U.S. foreign and domestic policies, Chomsky assesses Washington's escalation of nuclear risks; the dangerous consequences of the occupation of Iraq; and Americas's self-exemption from international law. He also examines an American electoral system that frustrates genuine political alternatives, thus impeding any meaningful democracy.--From publisher description
Rules and representations by Noam Chomsky( Book )

79 editions published between 1976 and 2006 in 7 languages and held by 1,865 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this influential and controversial work Chomsky draws on philosophy, biology, and the study of the mind to consider the nature of human cognitive capacities, particularly as they are expressed in language. He arrives at his well-known position that there is a universal grammar, genetically determined, structured in the human mind, and common to all human languages. Aside from his examination of the various principles of the universal grammar -- its "rules and representations"--Chomsky considers the biological basis of language capabilities and the possibility of studying mental structures and capacities in the manner of the natural sciences. Finally, he also explores whether there may be similar "grammars" of perception, art, human nature, scientific reasoning, and the unconscious. -- Publisher description
