David Barsamian is an Armenian-American radio broadcaster, writer, and the founder and director of Alternative Radio, a Colorado-based syndicated weekly public affairs program. Cipriani, Enrico (2016). "Some reflections on Chomsky's notion of reference". Linguistics Beyond and within. 2: 44–60. doi: 10.31743/lingbaw.5637. Anarchist and primitivist John Zerzan has accused Chomsky of not being a real anarchist, saying that he is instead "a liberal-leftist politically, and downright reactionary in his academic specialty, linguistic theory. Chomsky is also, by all accounts, a generous, sincere, tireless activist—which does not, unfortunately, ensure his thinking has liberatory value." [238]

In 1945, at the age of 16, Chomsky began a general program of study at the University of Pennsylvania, where he explored philosophy, logic, and languages and developed a primary interest in learning Arabic. [37] Living at home, he funded his undergraduate degree by teaching Hebrew. [38] Frustrated with his experiences at the university, he considered dropping out and moving to a kibbutz in Mandatory Palestine, [39] but his intellectual curiosity was reawakened through conversations with the linguist Zellig Harris, whom he first met in a political circle in 1947. Harris introduced Chomsky to the field of theoretical linguistics and convinced him to major in the subject. [40] Chomsky's BA honors thesis, "Morphophonemics of Modern Hebrew", applied Harris's methods to the language. [41] Chomsky revised this thesis for his MA, which he received from the University of Pennsylvania in 1951; it was subsequently published as a book. [42] He also developed his interest in philosophy while at university, in particular under the tutelage of Nelson Goodman. [43]Zerzan, John. "Who is Chomsky?". Primitivism.com.

[136] University departments devoted to history and political science rarely include Chomsky's work on their undergraduate syllabi. [291] Critics have argued that despite publishing widely on social and political issues, Chomsky has no formal expertise in these areas; he has responded that such issues are not as complex as many social scientists claim and that almost everyone is able to comprehend them regardless of whether they have been academically trained to do so. [182] According to McGilvray, many of Chomsky's critics "do not bother quoting his work or quote out of context, distort, and create straw men that cannot be supported by Chomsky's text".

[264] In addition to being known as one of the most important intellectuals of his time, [g] Chomsky has a dual legacy as a leader and luminary in both linguistics and the realm of political dissent. [265] Despite his academic success, his political viewpoints and activism have resulted in his being distrusted by mainstream media, and he is regarded as being "on the outer margin of acceptability".
