Within the field of computer science, specifically in the area of formal languages, the Chomsky hierarchy (occasionally referred to as Chomsky–Schützenberger hierarchy) is a containment hierarchy of classes of formal grammars.

This hierarchy of grammars was described by Noam Chomsky in 1956 (see [1]). It is also named after Marcel-Paul Schützenberger who played a crucial role in the development of the theory of formal languages.

The Chomsky hierarchy of formal languages was criticized by Deleuze who saw it as a perfect example of arborescent dualistic theory.
