Abstract:

Of all the tasks you perform, perhaps none is more consequential for the
performance of other tasks than paying attention. When you attend, you
perceive. When you attend and perceive, you remember. When you attend,
perceive, and remember, you learn. When you learn, you have the option of
acting deliberately. Perceiving, thinking, learning, deciding, and acting
require the constant adjustment of the attention system. The author
proposes a model of the greater attention system as comprising three
distinct but interdependent sub-systems: the signal system, the selection
system, and the interpersonal system, with eight elements distributed among
them: altering, orienting, detecting, sustaining, controlling, sharing,
harmonizing, and directing. The chapters in this book develop an
«attentional» analysis of meaning under the unifying framework of mental
spaces theory. In addition, each chapter explores the implications of an
attention based approach to meaning for research in semiotics, linguistics,
and rhetoric. Data for the investigation originate from the author's own
field work carried out in cultural institutions.
