Readership: Scholars and advanced students of the philosophy of language and mind and the Minimalist Program in linguistics, including linguists, philosophers, and cognitive scientists more generally. As the book provides coverage of important issues not covered in any philosophy or linguistics textbooks there may be a demand for the book as supplementary reading in courses on linguistic theory, mind and language and philosophy of language.
Wolfram Hinzen, Professor of Philosophy, Durham University
"...a well-structured, well written book..." - Georg Ki*cll, The Journal of Lingustics
"In Minimal Mind Design, Wolfram Hinzen laid out the philosophical foundations of a minimalist naturalization of meaning. Most philosophers would have been satisfied with that important contribution; Hinzen took it as a mere first step. In this sequel, he embarks on a far-reaching program, aiming at rethinking the old chestnuts of concepts, names and truth within a radically Chomskyan paradigm. I simply do not know of any other work of this scope and profoundness that is as well-versed on current syntactic theorizing." - Juan Uriagereka, Professor of Linguistics, The University of Maryland at College Park
marks a signal step in the evolution of generative grammar and the unification of mind and brain. It should command the attention of linguists, philosophers, psychologists and the field of cognitive science." - Tom Roeper, University of Massachusetts, Amherst
"...a book like Hinzen's is welcome..." - Ileana Paul and Robert J. Stainton, Mind
"In this finely crafted essay Hinzen argues that quintessentially semantic notions like Truth and Reference are in fact deeply grounded in natural language syntax. This is nothing less than the beginning of a Copernican revolution in philosophy of language and mind. This should be on everyone's required reading list." - Cedric Boeckx, Harvard University
