Noam Chomsky: The Responsibility Of Intellectuals 50 Years On.

Tuesday, October 29, 2019 - 18:45

PLEASE NOTE VENUE: University College London, Institute for Advanced Studies, AS Forum, Ground Floor, South Wing, Gower St., WC1E 6BT. Hosted by UCL Press, this book launch will include a panel discussion with dissident intellectuals Milan Rai, Jackie Walker and Chris Knight. 'The Responsibility of Intellectuals 50 years on' is a collection of essays by Noam Chomsky, Jackie Walker, Craig Murray and other prominent writers and activists. A highlight of the book is Chomsky's irate denunciation of one of the editors, Chris Knight, whose chapter details the extent to which Chomsky's ideas about language were developed in reaction to the military priorities of MIT, the institution where he worked.

Ian Watts, a founding member of the Radical Anthropology Group, recounts his experiences as an archaeologist in Africa, exploring how modern Homo sapiens evolved. Ian is the world's leading specialist in the ochre record of human evolution, and was part of a team who, while excavating Blombos Cave in 2002, discovered the world's earliest art. He is currently working intensively to sort out the sequences in Border Cave, which features a remarkably continuous stratigraphic record of human occupation spanning about 200 ka.
