Rhyme and reason an introduction to minimalist syntax by Juan Uriagereka ( Book )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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 is 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

Inevitable illusions : how mistakes of reason rule our minds by Massimo Piattelli-Palmarini ( Book )
1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Writing with all the wit and charm that have made his books international best-sellers, Piattelli-Palmarini explores the full range of cognitive illusions. From the perils of "probability blindness" to the smoke and mirrors of "magical thinking" and the perplexing twists and turns of the "seven deadly mental sins," he guides us on a sweeping tour of these fascinating discoveries. Through amusing and engaging examples, he allows us to see exactly where we go wrong and why we are so often ready to bet not just money, but even our lives and the lives of others, on our false conclusions. Taking us on a delightful intellectual adventure, Piattelli-Palmarini probes some of the most intriguing and significant new findings about the mysteries of the human mind and reveals how we can consciously protect ourselves from the deceptive short-cuts and flaws in logic that rule our thoughts
