Posted by M ws On Monday, March 11, 2013 0 comments
Avram Noam Chomsky (born December 7, 1928) is an American linguist, philosopher, cognitive scientist, logician, historian, political critic, and activist. He is an Institute Professor and Professor (Emeritus) in the Department of Linguistics & Philosophy at MIT, where he has worked for over 50 years. In addition to his work in linguistics, he has written on war, politics, and mass media, and is the author of over 100 books. According to the Arts and Humanities Citation Index in 1992, Chomsky was cited as a source more often than any other living scholar from 1980 to 1992, and was the eighth most cited source overall. He has been described as a prominent cultural figure, and he was voted the "world's top public intellectual" in a 2005 poll.



You can read more about him here or at his official website here.

You can access his articles HERE and the list of his books here.

Last month, Noam Chomsky gave a speech on public education. The following is the transcript of his speech in two parts.  I deliberately put up this post after posting J.G.Vibes' article on how 80 Percent Of Recent NYC High School Graduates Cannot Read.

Despite its length, the transcript is definitely worth reading.
