Language and mind by Noam Chomsky( Book )

172 editions published between 1968 and 2015 in 14 languages and held by 3,928 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
Aspects of the theory of syntax by Noam Chomsky( Book )

159 editions published between 1964 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 2,587 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

Reflections on language by Noam Chomsky( Book )

83 editions published between 1975 and 2011 in 8 languages and held by 2,138 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 )

44 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and French and held by 2,086 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 )

81 editions published between 1976 and 2005 in 6 languages and held by 1,863 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 )

102 editions published between 1971 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,831 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."--BOOK JACKET

Towards a new cold war : essays on the current crisis and how we got there by Noam Chomsky( Book )

30 editions published between 1973 and 2003 in English and held by 1,465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Towards a New Cold War extends Chomsky's critique of U.S. foreign policy through the early 1970s to Ronald Reagan's first term. Expanding on themes such as the cozy relationship of intellectuals to the state and American adventurism after World War II, Chomsky goes on to examine the way that U.S. policymakers set about the task of rewriting the horrible history of involvement in Indochina and turned their attention more squarely on the Middle East and Central America. Chomsky also addresses U.S. oil strategy and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, dissects the first colume of Kissinger's memoirs, issues an urgent call to stem the bloodshed in East Timor and, in the title essay, marks the increased posture of confrontation and rearmament under presidents Carter and Reagan that signaled the end of detente with the Soviet Union." "Featuring a new foreword by journalist John Pilger, this is the fifth of a new series of Chomsky's classic political works reissued by The New Press."--Jacket
