For Professor Chomsky, acquiring language and knowledge of our world is rooted in some innate human ability unique to our species. How we acquire this language, how we use it and the physical mechanisms involved are the subject of this study, his famous Managua Lectures. Gardner reads Chomsky at a moderately brisk clip, with no allowance for the difficulty of the material. Nevertheless, it's a discerning reading, attuned to every nuance of the professor's thought. For those used to philosophical discourse Gardner offers a great tool--the mind of Noam Chomsky. For the rest, buy the book and pore leisurely over the written text.
