January 2015

This paper is an extension of a review of Noam Chomsky: The Science of Language – Interviews with James McGilvray, (to appear in Philosophy in Review, http://journals.uvic.ca/index.php/pir). It provides (i) elaborations of some of the points I made, (ii) additional passages from the text showing that the examples originally selected are representative of the quality of the volume, and (iii) a brief discussion of Chomsky’s intellectual contributions.
