Book Information

   

Title: Cartesian Linguistics
Subtitle: A Chapter in the History of Rationalist Thought
Written By: Noam Chomsky
Series Title: 3rd Edition
Description:

In this extraordinarily 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,
contextualizing 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.
