The history of the writing of Verbal Behavior Skinner, , Chomsky's review , and MacCorquodale's rebuttal are briefly summarized. Chomsky's recent reflections on his review are analyzed: Chomsky's refusal to acknowledge the review's errors or its aggressive tone is consistent with his polemical style but comes at a minor cost in consistency and plausibility. However, his remarks about the place of Skinner's work in science reveal misunderstandings so great that they undercut the credibility of the review substantially. The gradual growth in the influence of Skinner's book suggests that its legacy will endure. Science is like a river, flowing inexorably downstream, freshened and swollen by rivulets of data. Our attempts to dam or divert it are too puny to prevail for long against the gathering weight; sooner or later all obstacles are swept away, and the river resumes its natural course. We can force Galileo to recant, but we cannot force the earth to stand still; eventually the astronomer is vindicated.

My latest book, The Responsibility of Intellectuals — Reflections by Noam Chomsky and others after 50 years , will be published in September Here is my reply:. Even at the venerable age of 90, Noam Chomsky remains the most influential left-wing intellectual alive today.
