Representation of Language: Philosophical Issues in a Chomskyan Linguistics

Oxford University Press (2020)

Georges Rey
University of Maryland, College Park
Georges Rey presents a much-needed philosophical defense of Noam Chomsky's famous view of human language, as an internal, innate computational system. But he also offers a critical examination of problematic developments of this view, to do with innateness, ontology, intentionality, and other issues of interdisciplinary interest.
