The publication in 1957 of Noam Chomsky's Syntactic Structures ushered in the era of what can properly be termed, Modern Linguistics: the science of language. This critical assessment brings together over 100 papers on every area of Chomsky's work revealing how pervasive his influence has been on all aspects of modern thought, from linguistics to philosophy, psychology, computer science, social theory, political analysis and literary theory. Carlos Otero is one of the world's leading interpreters of Chomsky's ideas and provides in this book a uniquely comprehensive assessment of his contribution to modern thought.
