Noam Chomsky | Wikipedia audio article
 
01:08:54
This is an audio version of the Wikipedia Article: Noam Chomsky Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago. Learning by listening is a great way to: - increases imagination and understanding - improves your listening skills - improves your own spoken accent - learn while on the move - reduce eye strain Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone. You can find other Wikipedia audio articles too at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuKfABj2eGyjH3ntPxp4YeQ You can upload your own Wikipedia articles through: https://github.com/nodef/wikipedia-tts "The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing." - Socrates SUMMARY ======= Avram Noam Chomsky (born December 7, 1928) is an American linguist, philosopher, cognitive scientist, historian, political activist, and social critic. Sometimes described as "the father of modern linguistics", Chomsky is also a major figure in analytic philosophy and one of the founders of the field of cognitive science. He holds a joint appointment as Institute Professor Emeritus at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and laureate professor at the University of Arizona, and is the author of over 100 books on topics such as linguistics, war, politics, and mass media. Ideologically, he aligns with anarcho-syndicalism and libertarian socialism. Born to middle-class Ashkenazi Jewish immigrants in Philadelphia, Chomsky developed an early interest in anarchism from alternative bookstores in New York City. He began studying at the University of Pennsylvania at age 16, taking courses in linguistics, mathematics, and philosophy. From 1951 to 1955, he was appointed to Harvard University's Society of Fellows. While at Harvard, he developed the theory of transformational grammar; for this, he was awarded his doctorate in 1955. Chomsky began teaching at MIT in 1957 and emerged as a significant figure in the field of linguistics for his landmark work Syntactic Structures, which remodelled the scientific study of language. From 1958 to 1959, he was a National Science Foundation fellow at the Institute for Advanced Study. Chomsky is credited as the creator or co-creator of the universal grammar theory, the generative grammar theory, the Chomsky hierarchy, and the minimalist program. Chomsky also played a pivotal role in the decline of behaviorism, being particularly critical of the work of B. F. Skinner. Chomsky vocally opposed U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War, believing the war to be an act of American imperialism. In 1967, Chomsky attracted widespread public attention for his anti-war essay entitled "The Responsibility of Intellectuals". Associated with the New Left, he was arrested multiple times for his activism and was placed on Nixon's "Enemies List". While expanding his work in linguistics over subsequent decades, he also became involved in the Linguistics Wars. In collaboration with Edward S. Herman, Chomsky later co-wrote an analysis, which articulated the propaganda model of media criticism, and worked to expose the Indonesian occupation of East Timor. Additionally, his defense of freedom of speech—including free speech for Holocaust deniers—generated significant controversy in the Faurisson affair of the early 1980s. Following his retirement from active teaching, Chomsky has continued his vocal political activism by opposing the War on Terror and supporting the Occupy Movement. One of the most cited scholars in history, Chomsky has influenced a broad array of academic fields. He is widely recognized as a paradigm shifter who helped spark a major revolution in the human sciences, contributing to the development of a new cognitivistic framework for the study of language and the mind. In addition to his continued scholarly research, he remains a leading critic of U.S. foreign policy, neoliberalism and contemporary state capitalism, the Israeli–Palestinian conflict, and mainstream news media. His ideas have proved highly significant within the anti-capitalist and anti-imperialist movements. Some of his critics have accused him of anti-Americanism.

Noam Chomsky: On Power and Ideology | The New School
 
01:16:30
Presented by Haymarket Books and the Schools of Public Engagement (http://www.newschool.edu/public-engagement) at The New School (http://www.newschool.edu), Noam Chomsky discusses the persistent and largely invariant features of U.S. foreign policy — in the words of U.S. planners, "the overall framework of order” — and its intimate relationship with U.S. domestic policy. MIT Institute Professor (emeritus) of linguistics and philosophy Noam Chomsky is widely regarded to be one of the foremost critics of U.S. foreign policy in the world. He has published numerous groundbreaking books, articles, and essays on global politics, history, and linguistics. His recent books include The New York Times bestsellers Hegemony or Survival and Failed States, as well as Hopes and Prospects and Masters of Mankind. Haymarket Books is currently reissuing twelve of his classic books in new editions. Location: John L. Tishman Auditorium, University Center Saturday, September 19, 2015 at 7:00 pm

Chomsky on Socialism
 
04:42
Noam Chomsky responds to a caller's request for his thoughts on socialism, during a 2003 interview by Brian Lamb, for C-SPAN's "In Depth" program. He describes how socialism was equated with the Leninist model of the Soviet Union by both the USA and its allies on the one hand, and the USSR and its allies on the other. Full interview available @ http://www.c-spanarchives.org/library/index.php?main_page=product_video_info&products_id=176809-1 I also recommend the following video, where Chomsky further describes the double-sided anti-socialist propaganda (beginning @ 7:55): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yQsceZ9skQI And here's a 1986 essay by Chomsky on the Soviet half of the anti-socialist duo: http://www.chomsky.info/articles/1986----.htm

Noam Chomsky Supported the Khmer Rouge (Pol Pot, etc.)

The article I encourage you to read on this subject is by Ear Sophal, available here: http://jim.com/canon.htm On the specific issue of U.S. support for the Khmer Rouge (in Cambodia, via Thailand) I can provide a relatively entertaining link here, starting at the 27 minute mark of John Pilger's documentary "Cambodia: The Betrayal": https://youtu.be/k2oTl51a3HM?t=25m35s You can also google around to find my article (published in two parts), titled "American wars, French borders: Thailand’s acrimonious adjacency to Cambodia." That article deals with the question of when precisely the U.S. started supporting the Khmer Rouge. If you were trying to get a better look at what the thumbnail for this video shows (and says), the full image is posted on my blog, here: http://a-bas-le-ciel.blogspot.ca/2016/02/noam-chomsky-supported-khmer-rouge-deal.html I commented (at some length) on the implications of U.S. support for the Khmer Rouge in an earlier youtube video, roughly the second half of the one titled, "Cold War Consequences…": https://youtu.be/Z5LyxuKy-GU?t=20m1s The two other names mentioned (for those wanting to google them) are (i) Judy L.

Noam Chomsky Reads the New York Times: Central America in the Paper of Record - 1985
 
38:51
Source - http://papertiger.org/noam-chomsky-reads-the-new-york-times-central-america-in-the-paper-of-record/ 1985 TRT: 39 minutes Episode #87 M.I.T linguist, social critic, and influential author and radical thinker, Noam Chomsky discusses U.S. foreign policy towards Central America through deconstruction of an article published in the New York Times discussing the Nicaraguan conflict of the mid-1980s. By examining this article alongside the reality of the conflict, Chomsky illustrates two propagandistic strategies which the New York Times, a publication which for all practical purposed writes history, utilizes in order to support the ethical flaws of U.S. foreign policy towards Central America. The first of these strategies is “selection,” which the article Chomsky looks at illustrates in its subject matter alone. The article discusses the Nicaraguan government and its support of militant groups in El Salvador and, as Chomsky points out, suppresses any mention of the repression and violence carried out by the U.S.-supported Salvadorian government. In doing so Chomsky explains that the article, in reality, deals solely with the secondary issue. It is through this point that Chomsky illustrates the second propagandistic strategy: formulating question in such a way that issues are prejudged. Chomsky also points out how the terminology of the article frames the situation in alignment with U.S. foreign policy. One example of this, which Chomsky points out, is that, while referring to a U.S.-supported mercenary army in Nicaragua as the “democratic opposition,” the New York Times in no way questions the democratic credentials of the group. Illuminating these and other fallacies of the coverage in the “paper of record,” Chomsky emphasizes that in order to responsibly read the news, one must ask oneself three questions: How does the state want the issue to be perceived? How does the publication want the issue to be perceived? And what is the reality of the situation.

But now Washington faltered. It had been alarmed by the scale of the uprisings [against Saddam Hussein] in the north and south. For several years the Americans had refused to have any contact with the Iraqi opposition groups, and assumed that revolution would lead to the break-up of Iraq as a unitary state. The Americans believed that the Shi'as wanted to secede to Iran and that the Kurds would want to join up with the Kurdish people of Turkey. No direct answer was returned to the Iraqi generals; but on 5 March, only four days after President Bush had spoken of the need for the Iraqi people to get rid of Saddam Hussein, the White House spokesman Marlin Fitzwater said, "We don't intend to get involved . . . in Iraq's internal affairs. . . ." An Iraqi general who escaped to Saudi Arabia in the last days of the uprising in southern Iraq told us that he and his men had repeatedly asked the American forces for weapons, ammunition and food to help them carry on the fight against Saddam's forces. The Americans refused. As they fell back on the town of Nasiriyeh, close to the allied positions, the rebels approached the Americans again and requested access to an Iraqi arms dump behind the American lines at Tel al-Allahem. At first they were told they could pass through the lines. Then the permission was rescinded and, the general told us, the Americans blew up the arms dump. American troops disarmed the rebels."

Noam Chomsky Reads the New York Times: Seeking Peace in the Middle East - 1986
 
29:03
Source - http://papertiger.org/noam-chomsky-reads-the-new-york-times-seeking-peace-in-the-middle-east/ 1986 TRT: 28 minutes Episode #88 Noam Chomsky, the extremely influential dissident, linguist, and media critic behind such works as Manufacturing Consent and What We Say Goes. In this Paper Tiger classic he deconstructs several New York Times articles by historians Bernard Wertzman and Thomas Friedman in order to examine the foreign policy of the United States in the context of the Israel/Palestine conflict. Chomsky examines how these articles skew the facts through “suppression” or “framing” in order to recreate history to meet the needs of current U.S. foreign policy. In examining the first article, “Are the Palestinians Ready to Seek Peace” by Wertzman, Chomsky points out that in the American Press, the validity of U.S. policy is unquestioned and thus the article frames the question within the “rejectionist” foreign policy of the United States. He goes on to look at the article by Thomas Friedman as well, which claims to document the history of peace negotiations between Palestine and Isreal. Chomsky calls attention to the suppression of facts in the article, pointing out several negotiations that are not mentioned. According to Chomsky, the title of Wertzman’s article should read “Are the Palestinians Ready for Peace?” but rather “Are the Palestinians Ready to Accept a Rejectionist Peace, in Which They Do Not Participate?” Chomsky concludes by restating that no one is ever against peace; everyone wants peace. “The question is: What peace?”

Noam Chomsky https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noam_Chomsky The following is an article response to the discourse between two prominent researchers, Noam Chomsky and Jean Piaget, who debated on the psychogenesis of knowledge and its epistemological significance (Beakley, & Ludlow, 1992). The premise of the debate, led by Piaget, was to argue that the hallmark of cognitive development is "construction of the new", a constructivist concept. According to Piaget, constructivism explains how individuals are actively involved in a constructive exchange with the environment through assimilation and accommodation which contributes to the acquisition of learning and of knowledge (Piaget, 1980).

Chomsky on the Pope's Radicalism
 
04:06
Full Blog post on Huffington Post. Please paste comments there. Getting Serious With the Gospels: Chomsky on the Church http://huff.to/1cnL3yb via @HuffPostRelig Article at The Raw Story | Archive | Politics http://www.rawstory.com/rs/?p=580953 Note from Abel Collins " I sat down to discuss a wide range of topics with the idol of my high school days, Noam Chomsky, in early October. This was before the release of Evangelii Gaudium, but after a lot of encouraging words about economic justice from Pope Francis. Chomsky's eyes lit up when I asked him about his thoughts on the new Pope's new direction for the Catholic Church. Essentially, he admired the rhetoric of the Pope but was concerned that "nothing much is happening." "we have to see if it crosses to the point where it leads to say organizing people to insist on their rights and to pursue the path of preferential option for the poor, take the gospels seriously" Thus, while I enjoy reading the Pope reiterating his opposition to the current economic model I, like Chomsky, was looking for more. Happily that is what I found in Evangelii Gaudium.. In fact, Francis devotes more of his writing to how the Church should change its methods of evangelizing than he does on which topics to evangelize upon. "Pastoral ministry in a missionary key seeks to abandon the complacent attitude that says: "We have always done it this way". I invite everyone to be bold and creative in this task of rethinking the goals, structures, style and methods of evangelization in their respective communities...The important thing is to not walk alone." He stresses the need to get outside the confines of the churches and into the community, meeting people where they are and organizing around issues that the people care about, like economic equality. The way I read it, Pope Francis is giving license to the clergy and the lay membership of the Church to engage fully in liberation theology, and I suspect they will. Wouldn't you? And that is the question really, because Catholic or not (I'm a Quaker myself) this radical honesty can light a spark in anyone's eyes. We can each take that license ourselves to evangelize about economic justice in our communities, and the light we shine will spark others to join us. "The important thing is to not walk alone."

Noam Chomsky: How Climate Change Became a 'Liberal Hoax'
 
21:50
In this sixth video in the series "Peak Oil and a Changing Climate" from The Nation and On The Earth Productions, linguist, philosopher and political activist Noam Chomsky talks about the Chamber of Commerce, the American Petroleum Institute and other business lobbies enthusiastically carrying out campaigns "to try and convince the population that global warming is a liberal hoax." According to Chomsky, this massive public relations campaign has succeeded in leading a good portion of the population into doubting the human causes of global warming. Known for his criticism of the media, Chomsky doesn't hold back in this clip, laying blame on mainstream media outlets such as the New York Times, which will run frontpage articles on what meteorologists think about global warming. "Meteorologists are pretty faces reading scripts telling you whether it's going to rain tomorrow," Chomsky says. "What do they have to say any more than your barber?" All this is part of the media's pursuit of "fabled objectivity." Of particular concern for Chomsky is the atmosphere of anger, fear and hostility that currently reigns in America. The public's hatred of Democrats, Republicans, big business and banks and the public's distrust of scientists all lead to general disregard for the findings of "pointy-headed elitists." The 2010 elections could be interpreted as a "death knell for the species" because most of the new Republicans in Congress are global warming deniers. "If this was happening in some small country," Chomsky concludes, "it wouldn't matter much. But when it's happening in the richest, most powerful country in the world, it's a danger to the survival of the species."

Most Schooling Is Training for Stupidity and Conformity - Noam Chomsky on Education
 
01:23
Avram Noam Chomsky (born December 7, 1928) is an American linguist, philosopher, cognitive scientist, historian, and activist. More Chomsky: https://www.amazon.com/gp/search?ie=UTF8&tag=tra0c7-20&linkCode=ur2&linkId=f6d6010bf86a5f8e7e57a720966eddfe&camp=1789&creative=9325&index=books&keywords=chomsky He is an Institute Professor and Professor (Emeritus) in the Department of Linguistics & Philosophy at MIT, where he has worked for over 50 years. Chomsky has been described as the "father of modern linguistics" and a major figure of analytic philosophy. His work has influenced fields such as computer science, mathematics, and psychology. Ideologically identifying with anarcho-syndicalism and libertarian socialism, Chomsky is known for his critiques of U.S. foreign policy and contemporary capitalism, and he has been described as a prominent cultural figure. His media criticism has included Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media (1988), co-written with Edward S. Herman, an analysis articulating the propaganda model theory for examining the media. According to the Arts and Humanities Citation Index in 1992, Chomsky was cited as a source more often than any other living scholar from 1980 to 1992, and was the eighth most cited source overall. Chomsky is the author of over 100 books. He is credited as the creator or co-creator of the Chomsky hierarchy, the universal grammar theory, and the Chomsky--Schützenberger theorem. Chomsky sees science as a straightforward search for explanation, and rejects the views of it as a catalog of facts or mechanical explanations. In this light, the majority of his contributions to science have been frameworks and hypotheses, rather than "discoveries." As such, he considers certain so-called post-structuralist or postmodern critiques of logic and reason to be nonsensical: I have spent a lot of my life working on questions such as these, using the only methods I know of; those condemned here as "science", "rationality," "logic," and so on. I therefore read the papers with some hope that they would help me "transcend" these limitations, or perhaps suggest an entirely different course. I'm afraid I was disappointed. Admittedly, that may be my own limitation. Quite regularly, "my eyes glaze over" when I read polysyllabic discourse on the themes of poststructuralism and postmodernism; what I understand is largely truism or error, but that is only a fraction of the total word count. True, there are lots of other things I don't understand: the articles in the current issues of math and physics journals, for example. But there is a difference. In the latter case, I know how to get to understand them, and have done so, in cases of particular interest to me; and I also know that people in these fields can explain the contents to me at my level, so that I can gain what (partial) understanding I may want. In contrast, no one seems to be able to explain to me why the latest post-this-and-that is (for the most part) other than truism, error, or gibberish, and I do not know how to proceed. Although Chomsky believes that a scientific background is important to teach proper reasoning, he holds that science in general is "inadequate" to understand complicated problems like human affairs: Science talks about very simple things, and asks hard questions about them. As soon as things become too complex, science can't deal with them... But it's a complicated matter: Science studies what's at the edge of understanding, and what's at the edge of understanding is usually fairly simple. And it rarely reaches human affairs. Human affairs are way too complicated. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noam_Chomsky
