That was a mental workout on a problem I obsess on consciousness or the mind/body problem or the hard problem of consciousness or the ghost in the machine. Chomsky fleshes out the debate from Aristotle to Des Cartes and Newton, through Russell and Eddington in the 1920s, To current debates on this p Leggi tutto
Noam Chomsky is not known as a slouch. And there is nothing slouch-like in this book. But it is limited. That appears to be his answer to the question posed by the title. This brief book consists of four essays: “What is language?”, “What can we understand?”, “What is the common good?” and “The myste Leggi tutto
A short book based on Chomsky's lectures at Columbia, composed in his usual boring* style, a deceptively simple summa of his work on language, science and society. I've been reading Chomsky's books since the 1970s. This is my favorite. If you haven't read Chomsky before, this is probably not the best Leggi tutto
This is an incredible book as it clarified Chomsky's linguistic project, which can be summed up by asking: what do we expect to discover when language is brought under naturalistic inquiry? What we expect to discover according to Chomsky is a computational procedure that accounts for the Basic Prope Leggi tutto
The first Chomsky I had to put down. I think this piece is meant for PhD linguists who care about super intellectual, nerd impedimenta. With yawning sentences like, "Suppose X and Y are merged, and neither is part of the other, as in combining read with that book to form the syntactic object corresp Leggi tutto
My gut tells me the author slopped together some essays or incomplete thoughts he had over the years, put them together as a slightly incoherent book labeled it as ‘what kind of creature are we’ and loosely tied them together under the rubric on the nature of thought, language, common good, and anth Leggi tutto

Tre lezioni sull'uomo che si possono riassumere, semplificando: 1. Il linguaggio è intimamente legato al nostro corredo genetico e serve più per pensare che per comunicare 2. La conoscenza umana ha dei limiti intrinseci alla sua natura con buona pace del mondo scientifico classico 3. Il bene comune, o Leggi tutto
An interesting little book. Only 127 pages, but man it touches on a lot of topics. Lunguistics, evolution, the evolution of language, politics(because I don't thin Chomsky can write a book without talking about politics lol), morality, the nature of knowledge, the nature of what we can even know, th Leggi tutto
Although the title seems to suggest a more familiar philosophical subject matter, this short book packs an esoteric punch. The first half is pretty thick linguistic sludge that is all but inviting. I was hoping Captain Chomsky would tone it down a bit for us laymen, but that hope was unrealized. Noa Leggi tutto
