Humboldt: 'On Language': On the Diversity of Human Language Construction and its Influence on the Mental Development of the Human Species (Cambridge Texts in the History of Philosophy)Hardcover– January 28, 2000
Besides its prefiguration of the concept of Universal Grammar, and regardless of its influence on Chomsky, this book still remains an amazing philosophical tour de force on the nature of language. Some passages are simply breath taking.
