Decoding Chomsky: Science and Revolutionary Politics (Book Launch)

Speaker(s)
Description

This evening will be the book launch of Chris Knight’s new book, ‘Decoding Chomsky: Science and revolutionary politics’, which has just been published by Yale University Press. The invited guests will discuss their take on the book. Jackie Walker and Jack Conrad are both political activists while Marek Kohn is a science journalist for the New Scientist.
The talks will be followed by wine, beer and snacks for everyone.
Discounted copies of the book will be on sale, signed with a flourish by the author!
‘Decoding Chomsky’ explores the roots of the post-war ‘cognitive revolution’ in science. Ranging from the radical art movements of the Russian Revolution to the influence of Pentagon funding on modern science, the book concludes with an exploration of current approaches to the origins of language and their implications for revolutionary politics in the 21st century.
