Linguistic theories and the biological foundations of human language:
a dialogue
This III meeting intends to focus on encouraging a dialogue among researchers
who are interested in understanding how language functions in the human brain.
There are basically two types of methods of analysis which are being used. One
looks at how the Language Function expresses itself in the brain at a biological
level. The other looks at whether this functioning can be encapsulated using a
representational approach. Both methods, the physical and the metaphysical one,
need each other in order to handle, in the best way possible, the limitations
they have when faced with interpreting the overwhelming complexity which the
Language Function exhibits.

Las Teorías lingüísticas y los fundamentos biológicos del lenguaje humano: un
diálogo
Este tercer congreso trata de enfocarse en alentar el diálogo entre
investigadores que están interesados en entender cómo funciona el lenguaje en el
cerebro humano. Hay dos tipos básicos de métodos de análisis que se están
utilizando. Uno investiga cómo se expresa la función lingüística en el cerebro
desde un punto de vista biológico y el otro si este funcionamiento puede
encapsularse usando una aproximación representacional. Ambos métodos, el físico
por una parte y el meta-físico por otra se necesitan mútuamente para enfrentarse
mejor a las limitaciones que tienen a la hora de interpretar la complejidad
desbordante que presenta el funcionamiento lingüístico.
