'The Cambridge Companion to Chomsky is a comprehensive, intelligible, and hugely informative guide to Chomsky studies, essential to all academic institutions and libraries, and inspiring for all who hope and believe that a better world is possible.' Reference Reviews

Book Description

Noam Chomsky is one of the most influential thinkers of modern times. The most cited writer in the humanities, his work has revolutionised the field of linguistics, and has dominated many other disciplines including politics and the philosophy of mind and human nature. This companion brings together a team of leading linguists, philosophers, cognitive scientists and political theorists to consolidate the disparate strands of Chomsky's thought into one accessible volume. Comprehensive, engaging and informative, this is an essential guide to one of the leading intellectual figures of our time.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This Cambridge Companion is a good introduction to Chomsky's thought, in linguistics (where he has made a major impact), as well as in cognitive sciences (which he was instrumental in initiating) and politics. There is a nice balance between clarity and the necessity of sophistication in exposing one the richest contribution to the intellectual history of the 20th and 21st centuries.
