Book Review
In the late 20th century, increasing numbers of preachers and scholars have emphasized the narrative quality of the Bible, considering Scripture to be a collection of stories about God's relationship with humanity. Narrative readings of the Bible are most trustworthy when they're based on clear understandings of the characters and settings. And such understanding is now within reach of any lay reader, in the form of the well-researched, easy-to-use reference The Oxford Guide to People and Places of the Bible. Edited by Bruce M. Metzger (the renowned New Testament scholar who chaired the committee that produced the New Revised Standard Version) and Michael D. Coogan (editor of The Oxford History of the Biblical World), this book contains more than 300 entries on every major person and place in the Bible, from Adam to...

Zero Syntax
David Michael Pesetsky
0262161451
Nov 1994
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
The analysis and theory developed in Zero Syntax is an important contribution to the understanding of Universal Grammar. The overriding theme is the notion that the availability and syntactic positioning of arguments is not a matter of chance but arises from laws governing the structure of lexical entries and from laws governing syntactic structures themselves. Along the way, Zero Syntax also examines issues of broad significance to current theoretical linguistic research in syntax and lexical semantics.

Zero Syntax develops two main topics: a simple view of syntactic linking regularities that it defends in the domain of Experiencer predicates (predicates such as "annoy"), and a theory of syntactic constituency that involves two parallel modes of structural organization (one of which...


Stars of David: Prominent Jews Talk about Being Jewish
Abigail Pogrebin
0767916123
October 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Consistently engaging, these 60 interviews conducted by journalist Pogrebin explore the thoughts of well-known artists, politicians and others in the public eye on the complexities of Jewish identity;and the emotions they engender. The issues touched on range from the legacy of the Holocaust to the Middle East, Jewish traditions, intermarriage and much more. The conflicts are typified by Sarah Jessica Parker, who says her supportive feelings about Israel in its conflict with the Palestinians make her feel more Jewish, but she is uncertain about the religious education she will give her child. Others, like Dustin Hoffman and William Kristol, have been firmly committed to passing on Jewish rituals and history to their children. Gloria Steinem, who joyfully attends feminist seders, still remains alienated by the...


Phrasal Movement and Its Kin
David Michael Pesetsky
0262161966
Oct 2000
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
This study investigates the types of movement and movement-like relations that link positions in syntactic structure. David Pesetsky argues that there are three such relations. Besides overt phasal movement, there are two distinct types of movement without phonological effect: covert phrasal movement and feature movement. Focusing on wh-questions, he shows how his classification of movement-like relations allows us to understand the story behind wh-questions in which an otherwise inviolable property of movement--"Attract Closest"--appears to be violated. By demonstrating that more movement takes place in such configurations than previously suspected, he shows that Attract Closest is actually not violated at all in these cases. This conclusion draws on recent research in both syntax and semantics, and...


Sites of Vision
David M. Gavin
0262621290
Jan 1999
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
In recent years scholars from many disciplines have become interested in the "construction" of the human senses--in how the human environment shapes both how and what we perceive. Taking a very different approach to the question of construction, Sites of Vision turns to language and explores the ways in which the rhetoric of philosophy has formed the nature of vision and how, in turn, the rhetoric of vision has helped to shape philosophical thought. The central role of vision in relation to philosophy is evident in the vocabulary of the discipline--in words such as "speculation," "observation," "insight," and "reflection"; in metaphors such as "mirroring," "perspective," and "point of view"; and in methodological concepts such as "reflective detachment" and "representation." Because the history of vision is so...
