From Library Journal

Including transcripts of three lectures and an interview, this work presents results from noted linguist Chomsky's November 1999 visit to the University of Siena's Certosa di Pontignano, a secluded research center. The varied collection of essays offers a unique introduction to the minimalist approach to linguistics, which views language as optimally enabling the brain to express thought. Adriana Belletti and Luigi Rizzi, two University of Siena linguistics professors, contribute a lengthy introductory essay highlighting progress in linguistic research (Chapter 1) as well as a transcript of their interview with Chomsky (Chapter 4). Both in the interview and the lectures reproduced in Chapters 2 and 3, Chomsky explains how the minimalist approach fits with other scientific research. In Chapter 5, he discusses political topics. Among Chomsky's other publications exploring minimalism, New Horizons in the Study of Language and the Mind is the most similar to this work. While comparable in length, New Horizons offers seven essays that provide more depth than the Italian lectures or interview. Recommended for academic libraries that support linguistics programs.Marianne Orme, Des Plaines P.L., ILCopyright 2002 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Review

"...important...fascinating..." Geolinguistics"Chomsky's writing is more powerful than Orwell's, and his documentation more compelling and up-to-date. This book is important for those interested in Chomsky's linguistic and political writings and, especially, the link between them. Graduate students, researchers, and faculty." Choice"...an interesting read for those who like to keep up to date on the current positions of one of today's most important public intellectuals." Metapsychology
