2 Chomsky: Ideas and Ideals

Neil Smith

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 2004, 0-521-54688-5 / 9780521546881, Second Edition, Paperback, New, 228 x 152 Mm 
Noam Chomsky is one of the leading intellectual figures of modern times. He has had a major influence on linguistics, psychology and philosophy, and a significant effect on many other disciplines, from anthropology to mathematics, education to literary criticism. In this rigorous yet accessible account of Chomsky’s work and influence, Neil Smith analyses Chomsky’s key contributions to the study of language and the study of mind. He gives a detailed exposition of Chomsky’s linguistic theorizing, discusses the psychological and philosophical implications of Chomsky’s work, and argues that he has fundamentally changed the way we think of ourselves, gaining a position in the history of ideas on a par with that of Darwin or Descartes. This second edition has been thoroughly updated to account for Chomsky’s most recent work, including his continued contributions to linguistics, his further discussion on evolution, and his extensive work on the events of September 11th, 2001. ?A unique overview of all aspects of Chomsky’s work: linguistic, philosophical and political ?A synthesis of 50 years?revolutionary work into an easily understandable and coherent account of the century’s most widely cited thinker ?Authoritative and up-to-date Contents 1.

7 The Talking Greeks: Speech, Animals, and the Other in Homer, Aeschylus and Plato

John Heath

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 2005, 0-521-83264-0 / 9780521832649, First Edition, Hard Cover, New, New, 228 x 152 Mm 
When considering the question of what makes us human, the ancient Greeks provided numerous suggestions. This book argues that the defining criterion in the Hellenic world, however, was the most obvious one: speech. It explores how it was the capacity for authoritative speech which was held to separate humans from other animals, gods from humans, men from women, Greeks from non-Greeks, citizens from slaves, and the mundane from the heroic. John Heath illustrates how Homer’s epics trace the development of immature young men into adults managing speech in entirely human ways and how in Aeschylus?Oresteia only human speech can disentangle man, beast, and god. Plato’s Dialogues are shown to reveal the consequences of Socratically-imposed silence. With its examination of the Greek focus on speech, animalization, and status, this book offers new readings of key texts and provides significant insights into the Greek approach to understanding our world. ?Presents a model for the factor unifying philosophical and political developments in ancient Greece ?Provides new readings of the Iliad, Odyssey, Oresteia and Plato’s Dialogues in which the role of speech is provided ?Adopts an interdisciplinary drawing on philosophy, linguistics and classics Contents Introduction; Part I.
