Abstract

The aim of this paper is to briefly assess, from the point of view of a linguist, the main contributions that experimental results and theoretical assumptions in neuropsychology have made to linguistics. The “neuromaniacal” fascination witnessed over the last three decades in linguistics is often bitterly criticized, suggesting a different approach to building a promising dialogue between the humanities and neuro-sciences – one sheltered from reductionism, which has proved so detrimental to many of the approaches developed so far.
