Noam Chomsky is one of the most influential thinkers of our century. His work has revolutionized linguistics; it has had a profound influence in philosophy; and as a commentator on American and world politics, Chomsky has a powerful voice. Carlos Otero's book is the first systematic appraisal for some years of Chomsky's intellectual career. It draws together and demonstrates the coherence of Chomsky's apparently disparate writings in linguistics, philosophy and politics. The book opens with a discussion of Chomsky's ideas of cultural anthropology and his writing on specifically political topics. Professor Otero discusses his naturalist philosophy of mind and moves on to consider Chomsky's work on language, thought and formal linguistics. Though technically exact, the book is accessible to readers with little specialist knowledge of the field. It is both an appreciation of Chomsky's work and a guide to understanding it.
