Noam Chomsky, linguist and social critic

Our guest this week is Noam Chomsky, the renowned linguist and social critic.

The Institute Professor Emeritus of linguistics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Professor Chomsky is credited with the creation of the theory of generative grammar, often considered the most significant contribution to the field of theoretical linguistics of the 20th century. 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.

Chomsky is also a prominent and incisive political analyst and commentator, most notably on U.S. foreign policy, and it is on this aspect of his work that we will be concentrating on Sunday. He is a prolific author, including Manufacturing Consent (with Edward Herman), Hegemony or Survival, Necessary Illusions, and many more (see the websites below for bibliographies).
