Hey guys, you all know me around here but it's not often I start threads. Anyway.... I had a hell of a 7 hour drive today to get back to school. Well, being in the academic mood naturally I listened to a little NPR, but my itunes skipped over to a talk by Noam Chomsky. Now, I've heard a bit about the guy but this was the first time I've ever actually listened to him speak. From what I've heard so far, he seems like a well reasoned intellectual type and his ideas, while definitely needing more follow research on my part, were fascinating. Have any of you ever read or listened to him? What did you think? Got any praises/criticisms of the man or his ideas? Any specific lectures or books by him that you'd suggest? Lets try not to let this one devolve into culture wars guys, please just once!
