Chomsky turns 84 today, more than a half century after he exploded onto the scene of linguistics, in the late 1950's, as a young professor at M.I.T. His career began perhaps most notably with a book review that helped launch an entire field of linguistics

This article is a tribute to Chomsky written by a former student of Chomsky's, now a Psychology Professor at N.Y.U. Most of us know Chomsky as a brilliant political writer and lecturer, but this article describes his work in Linguistics and his role as a professor, where his influence arguably surpasses his political influence.

Let's say HAPPY BIRTHDAY Noam Chomsky and many happy returns to this great mind in both fields that are equally interesting. Thx for the post Judy.

He did depose Skinner which was a good thing; damn black box. I suppose that's where Frank Herbert stole the idea from where he poses the young Atreides being tested with the black box in Dune. There is much merit to a lot of Chomsky's teachings but I'm not an acolyte of any one teacher. or discipline. Any equation; philosophy or paradigm that doesn't factor in variables to allow for change is stilted and in time becomes static to the point of inertia and decay. Cheers Noam
