Abstract:

Collecting the work of linguists, psychologists, neuroscientists,
archaeologists, artificial intelligence researchers and philosophers this
volume presents a richly varied picture of the nature and function of
mental states. Starting from questions about the cognitive capacities of
the early hominin homo floresiensis, the essays proceed to the role
mental representations play in guiding the behaviour of simple organisms
and robots, thence to the question of which features of its environment the
human brain represents and the extent to which complex cognitive skills
such as language acquisition and comprehension are impaired when the brain
lacks certain important neural structures. Other papers explore topics
ranging from nativism to the presumed constancy of categorization across
signed and spoken languages, from the formal representation of metaphor,
actions and vague language to philosophical questions about conceptual
schemes and colours. Anyone interested in mental states will find much to
reward them in this fine volume.

Abstract:

The contributions to this volume focus on what language and language use
reveals about cognitive structure and underlying cognitive categories.
Wide-ranging and thought-provoking essays from linguists and psychologists
within this volume investigate the insights conceptual categorization can
give into the organization and structure of the mind and specific mental
states. Topics and linguistic phenomena discussed include narratives and
story telling, language development, figurative language, linguistic
categorization, linguistic relativity, and the linguistic coding of mental
states such as perceptions and beliefs. With contributions at the forefront
of current debate, this book will appeal to anyone with an interest in
language and the cognitive structures that support it.
