MEDIA REVIEWS

"Chomsky makes very harsh assessments of the scholarship of people like Derrida, and Wise does a good job of showing that it is not simply that deconstructionist theorists 'write gibberish,' but that they hold views that challenge many of Chomsky's basic philosophical assumptions. This book places Chomsky in the history of Western philosophy and shows why the linguists influenced by Chomsky would do well to pay more attention to what is happening in critical theory today, outside the more narrowly defined field of generative theoretical linguistics." - Fallou Ngom, Associate Professor of Anthropology and Director of the African Language Program, Boston University
