Steven Pinker on linguistics

I just came across this excellent overview of the field of linguistics by Steven Pinker. Highly recommended.

Curious about the ways humans use their minds and hearts to distract themselves from the meaninglessness of life.

    Watched the video, enjoyed it! (Not everything Pinker does annoys me, haha) Very interesting that how the questions linguists and philosophers of language ask intersect with computer science and psychology, and how Chomsky was critical in all of those fields for his work on the same subject matter.
