Description

This volume demonstrates the incontestability of the historical, as well as conceptual, linkage between the theory of generative/transformational/universal grammar associated with Noam Chomsky and the philosophical synthesis achieved by Immanual Kant in the "Critique of Pure Reason". Specifically, it also traces a clear line of theoretical development regarding that topic from the "Essay on Language" by J.G. Herder; through the massive contribution of Kant in the "Critique", to the pioneering terms of W. von Humboldt in "On the Structural Difference of Human Language" and, hence, to its computer-age culmination at the hands of Chomsky.
