Institute Professor and Professor Emeritus in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Department of Linguistics and Philosophy, Chomsky earned his doctorate in linguistics in 1955 from the University of Pennsylvania. Chomsky joined the staff of the MIT in 1955 and in 1961 was appointed full professor.  The major theoretical viewpoints of his doctoral dissertation appeared in the monograph Syntactic Structure, 1957.  This formed part of a more extensive work, The Logical Structure of Linguistic Theory, circulated in mimeograph in 1955 and published in 1975. In 1976, he was appointed institute professor in the department of linguistics and philosophy.

Chomsky, a native of Philadelphia, Pa., has lectured at many universities across the United States and abroad, and is the recipient of numerous honorary degrees and awards.  He has been revered for his views on linguistics, philosophy, intellectual history, contemporary issues, international affairs and U.S. foreign policy.  Among his books are: “New Horizons in the Study of Language and Mind”; “On Nature and Language”;  “The Essential Chomsky; Hopes and Prospects”; “Gaza in Crisis; How the World Works”; “9-11: Was There an Alternative”; “Making the Future: Occupations, Interventions, Empire, and Resistance”; “The Science of Language; Peace with Justice:  Noam Chomsky in Australia”; and “Power Systems.”

I am broken-hearted that I did not know about the lecture at ESU by Noam Chomsky on Feb 6th. I see that you did a rebroadcast on February 12th. I have just learned of this tonight (Feb, 16th) Will you be doing a rebroadcast again?
