Course Overview This course is concerned with a wide ranging topics concerning the "Generative Enterprise," which, for the first time in the history of linguistics, introduced a perspective according to which the in-depth study of human language will significantly contribute to the exploration of the nature of human mind, something that may be called "the human nature." The course covers discussions of the intellectual background of modern generative grammar, its rapid development for more than a half century, and its current status as biolinguistics.
