First edition of Chomsky’s Russell lectures in honor of Bertrand Russell. Octavo, original cloth. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. Signed by Noam Chomsky on the half title page.

Delivered in 1971 as the first Cambridge lectures in memory of Bertrand Russell, Problems of Knowledge and Freedom is a masterful and cogent synthesis of Noam Chomsky’s moral philosophy, linguistic analysis, and emergent political critique of America’s war in Vietnam. In this wide-ranging work, Chomsky takes up Russell’s lifelong search for the empirical principles of human understanding, in a philosophical overview referencing Hume, Wittgenstein, von Humboldt, and others.
