Authors Michael Devitt

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.
