David W. Lightfoot, University of Maryland I feel that it is his most persuasive defense of the idea that the study of linguistic structure provides insight into the human mind. Frederick J. Newmeyer, University of Washington This is an excellent contribution to the philosophy of language and the philosophy of mind...The best available introduction to Chomsky's current ideas on syntax made accessible to the non-specialist. Julius M. Moravcsik, Stanford Unviersity
