Noam Chomsky is one of the most widely published and influential thinkers on language and mind. This book consists of an edited transcript of a lecture, delivered at the University of Delhi in January 1996, where Chomsky reflects on the history of the 'generative enterprise' to relate it to some strikingly novel advances in recent grammatical theory.

Edited transcript of a 1996 lecture and discussion in India. Under 100 pages. Maybe Chomsky (wearing his linguistics hat, not his political one) could be likened to Wittgenstein, telling us late in life to forget about his elaborate earlier work. Read full review
