'As before, Chomsky has set out issues and theories of the utmost importance. To disagree with him, to sense that the jury is out on key assertions remains a (perilous) privilege.' George Steiner, Observer 'This book extends Chomsky's thinking on matters in the philosophy of language and mind in ways that will surely move the debate forward. It fleshes out many views that Chomsky has advocated in recent years and does so in a readable and provocative form.' Professor Norbert Hornstein, University of Maryland, College Park 'Chomsky has refined his view of the language faculty often and now entertains the amazing view that language may be nearly perfect. A stunning series of essays.' David Lightfoot, University of Maryland 'These essays represent the most significant work that has been done in the general area of philosophy of language and philosophy of mind.' Gilbert Harman, Princeton University 'This is a very important book; not just because a lot of what it says is true, but also because Chomsky is a very important thinker.' Jerry Fodor, Times Literary Supplement
