Noam Chomsky


Avram Noam Chomsky (born December 7, 1928) is an Institute Professor Emeritus of linguistics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and creator of the Chomsky hierarchy, a classification of formal languages. His works in generative linguistics contributed significantly to the decline of behaviorism and led to the advancement of the cognitive sciences. Outside of his linguistic work, Chomsky is also widely known for his political activism and his criticism of the foreign policy of the United States and other governments. Chomsky describes himself as a libertarian socialist and a sympathizer of anarcho-syndicalism.

According to the Arts and Humanities Citation Index, between 1980 and 1992 Chomsky was cited as a source more often than any living scholar, and the eighth most cited source overall. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noam_Chomsky [Jun 2005]

Criticism by Deleuze and Guattari

Deleuze and Guattari criticize Chomsky's dichotomous linguistic model for failing to connect "a language to the semantic and pragmatic contents of statements, to collective assemblages of enunciation, to a whole micropolitics of the social field" --http://wwwmcc.murdoch.edu.au/ReadingRoom/VID/jfk/thesis/ch1.htm

    In this series of interviews conducted by fawning journalists, Chomsky does the following things: (1) lambaste the US incessantly for past military interventions, (2) analyze the causes of the attacks of 9/11 and (3) suggest that the US seek justice by proper, legal means instead of by military action. -- Edward Lee for amazon.com
