Language and mind by Noam Chomsky( Book )

180 editions published between 1968 and 2015 in 15 languages and held by 3,969 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the long-awaited third edition of Chomsky's outstanding collection of essays on language and mind. The first six chapters, originally published in the 1960s, made a groundbreaking contribution to linguistic theory. This new edition complements them with an additional chapter and a new preface, bringing Chomsky's influential 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 an explosion of 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 novel and exciting challenges for the study of language and mind"--Publisher's description
Syntactic structures by Noam Chomsky( Book )

208 editions published between 1957 and 2015 in 11 languages and held by 3,299 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 theorems derivable from it, explicit results which may be compared with new data and other intuitions, all based plainly on an overt theory of the internal structure of languages; and it may well provide an opportunity for the application of explicity measures of simplicity to decide preference of one form over another form of grammar

Hegemony or survival : America's quest for global dominance by Noam Chomsky( Book )

22 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chomsky investigates how we are willing to jeopardize the future of our species and 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. The militarization of space, the ballistic-missile defense program, unilateralism, the dismantling of international agreements, and the response to the Iraqi crisis work together in a drive for hegemony that ultimately threatens our survival

Aspects of the theory of syntax by Noam Chomsky( Book )

116 editions published between 1965 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 2,060 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beginning in the mid-fifties and emanating largely form MIT, and approach was developed to linguistic theory and to the study of the structure of particular 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 and 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 particular 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
Failed states : the abuse of power and the assault on democracy by Noam Chomsky( Book )

41 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 1,996 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The United States has repeatedly asserted its right to intervene militarily against 'failed states' around the globe. In this much-anticipated follow-up to his international bestseller Hegemony or Survival, Chomsky turns the tables, showing how the United States itself shares features with other failed states-- and therefore is increasingly a danger to its own people and the world
Rules and representations by Noam Chomsky( Book )

85 editions published between 1976 and 2009 in 6 languages and held by 1,926 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
Problems of knowledge and freedom by Noam Chomsky( Book )

108 editions published between 1971 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,835 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the first half of this wide-ranging work, Chomsky takes up Russell's lifelong search for the empirical principles of human understanding, in a philosophical overview referencing Hume, Leibniz, Wittgenstein, and others. In the following half, aptly-titled "On Changing the World," Chomsky applies these concepts to the issues that would remain the focus of his increasingly political work of the period. These include the war in Indochina and the Cold War ideology that supported it, the centralization of U.S. decision-making in the Pentagon and the growing influence of multinational corporations in those circles, the politicization of American universities in the post-World War II years, along with his reflections on the Cuban missile crisis and the mass liberation movements of the era."--Jacket
The sound pattern of English by Noam Chomsky( Book )

61 editions published between 1968 and 1997 in English and French and held by 1,772 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cartesian linguistics: a chapter in the history of rationalist thought by Noam Chomsky( Book )

66 editions published between 1966 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,726 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

Current issues in linguistic theory by Noam Chomsky( Book )

87 editions published between 1962 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 1,190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this paper,(1) I will restrict the term "linguistic theory" to systems of hypotheses concerning the general features of human language put forth in an attempt to account for a certain range of linguistic phenomena. I will not be concerned with systems of terminology or methods of investigation (analytic procedures). The central fact to which any significant linguistic theory must address itself is this: a mature speaker can produce a new sentence of his language on the appropriate occasion, and other speakers can understand it immediately, though it is equally new to them. Most of our li
New horizons in the study of language and mind by Noam Chomsky( Book )

24 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and Portuguese and held by 1,098 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
Topics in the theory of generative grammar by Noam Chomsky( Book )

71 editions published between 1966 and 1978 in English and held by 1,058 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On nature and language by Noam Chomsky( Book )

26 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and Chinese and held by 979 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
