This unusual book takes the form of a dialogue between a linguist and another scientist

This unusual book takes the form of a dialogue between a linguist and another scientist. The dialogue takes place over six days, with each day devoted to a particular topic―and the ensuing digressions. Although the linguist serves essentially as a voice for Noam Chomsky's ideas, he is not intended to be a portrait of Chomsky himself.

Winner in the category of Linguistics in the 1998 Professional/Scholarly Publishing Annual Awards Competition presented by the Association of American Publishers, Inc. foreword by Massimo Piatelli-Palmarini Winner of the Association of American Publishers' 1998 PSP Award for Best New Book in Literature and Language This unusual book takes the form of a dialogue between a linguist and another scientist. The dialogue takes place over six days, with each day devoted to a particular topic—and the ensuing digressions. The role of the linguist is to present the fundamentals of the minimalist program of contemporary generative grammar. Although the linguist serves essentially as a voice for Noam Chomsky's ideas, he is not intended to be a portrait of Chomsky himself. The other scientist functions as a kind of devil's advocate, making the arguments that linguists tend to face from those in the "harder" sciences. In addition to the device of the dialogue, the author employs a myriad of graphics—everything from classical paintings to contemporary cartoons. The author does far more than simply present the minimalist program. He conducts a running argument over the status of theoretical linguistics as a natural science. He raises the general issues of how we conceive words, phrases, and transformations, and what these processes tell us about the human mind. He also attempts to reconcile generative grammar with the punctuated equilibrium version of evolutionary theory. For according to the linguist, the linguistic system in our species emerged as a complex system, comparable to other complex phenomena in life that elude strict adaptationist explanations. In his foreword, Massimo Piatelli-Palmarini says, "The vast number of readers who have been enthralled by Gödel, Escher, Bach may well like also this syntactic companion, a sort of ‘Chomsky, Fibonacci, Bach.’"

an excellent thought proving bridging of the gap between science and lingusitics, though the gap still remains un-bridgable. better to coin some better technical terms serving as go-between for natural scientists and linguist. We may have a linguistic book specifically written for sicientists in general and a biological book specifically written for linguists. No easy job. Juan Uriagereka may have a try.

Who on Earth will read about minimalist syntax in dialogue form is beyond me. Perhaps intended as an affable feature, it becomes totally distracting. More to the point, let's say this book is not for the linguist since it is an introduction: why, then, all the circumventing of explanations? And hard science notation should be reserved for mathematics, physics, chemistry... Generative grammar gave us a great deal of standardization, maybe not everything is covered, but what gives each new writer the idea that they can invent their own esperanto notation? Where is a proper introduction to minimalism?

Written entirely in a dialogue-style (like Plato's Socratic dialogues), the authors provide an engaging and entertaining introduction to the 'minimalist agenda' laid out by Noam Chomsky. This book can be edifying for linguists and non-linguists alike; where the latter may get confused, diagrams and explanations are provided along the pages' margins.
The dialogue takes place between the Linguist (L) and the Other (O), the linguist being the Chomskyan 'expert' and the Other being the interested non-linguist, who is obviously highly intelligent and speaks several languages, but doesn't know much about linguistics or how language works. Thus, as L tries to explain language, O asks questions, gets upset, cracks jokes, etc.
This makes for enjoyable reading, and a good introduction to a very complicated subject, even if (like me) you don't agree with the Chomskyans. However, the book is very long and at times taxing. If you are looking for a lighter (but perhaps less satisfying) read, turn to Steven Pinker's the 'Language Instinct.' But better yet, to even out the picture, include a non-Chomskyan account of language in your syllabus.
