Noam Chomsky is internationally recognized for his writing, lecturing, and teaching on linguistics, philosophy, contemporary issues, intellectual history, international affairs, and U.S. foreign policy. Born in 1928 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, he studied linguistics, mathematics, and philosophy at the University of Pennsylvania, where he received his PhD in linguistics. He taught at Massachusetts Institute of Technology for 50 years and is now Institute Professor (Emeritus) in the Department of Linguistics and Philosophy.
He has published leagues of work, including numerous best-selling political books, which have been translated into scores of languages worldwide, most notably among them: Hopes and Prospects, The Essential Chomsky, Hegemony or Survival, For Reasons of State, Occupy, and Fateful Triangle (new edition forthcoming from Haymarket Books).
The New York Times Book Review says, “Judged in terms of the power, range, novelty, and influence of his thought, Noam Chomsky is arguably the most important intellectual alive.”
In this episode he is joined in conversation with David Barsamian. The companion Talk episode may be found here.
