The Center for Language Acquisition is pleased to announce this year's Kirby-Greer Endowed Lecture by

Terrence W. Deacon
Professor of Biological Anthropology
University of California, Berkeley

"Universal Grammar: Neither Nature nor Nurture"

 

Terrence W. Deacon will discuss some recent work that takes an unprecedented approach to universal grammar and the poverty of the stimulus argument.  In his discussion, he will focus on symbolic reference and constraints by investigating four main categories:  semiotic constraints, neural processing constraints, evolved sensorimotor schemas and cognitive biases, and pragmatic social communication constraints.

 

Terrence W. Deacon is Professor of Biological Anthropology at University of California, Berkeley, and author of the 1997 book The Symbolic Species: The Coevolution of Language and the Brain and the 2011 book Incomplete Nature: How Mind Emerged from Matter. His work extends from laboratory-based cellular-molecular neurobiology to the study of semiotic processes underlying animal and human communication, especially language.
