endowed with an innate "language faculty" and that part of this
biological endowment is a set of principles common to all
languages--otherwise known as the "theory of Universal Grammar."
From Aristotle to Gallileo to Descartes to Hume--to the cognitive
revolution of the 1950s and the most recent work in clinical and
developmental psychology--Chomsky charts the history of
philisophical inquiry in the nature of Language & Mind.
Never before or again will Noam Chomsky make such a
presentation available on video. A foundational and essential
presentation for curricula in linguistics, psychology, or philosophy,
