Description

What is linguistics about? What role should linguistic intuitions play in constructing grammars? What is innate about language? Arguing that linguistics is about linguistic reality and is not part of psychology, this book offers answers to these questions. It is intended for those working on language and the mind.

A wealth of careful distinctions and detailed arguments...an example of how serious philosophy of a very technical area may be conducted with thoroughness, lucidity, and elegance.

Texte du rabat

The Chomskian revolution in linguistics gave rise to a new orthodoxy about mind and language. Michael Devitt throws down a provocative challenge to that orthodoxy. What is linguistics about? What role should linguistic intuitions play in constructing grammars? What is innate about language? Is there a "language faculty?" These questions are crucial to our developing understanding of ourselves; Michael Devitt offers refreshingly original answers.
