Title: Handbook of Categorization in Cognitive Science
Edited By: Claire Lefebvre
Henri Cohen
URL: http://www.elsevier.com/locate/isbn/0080446124
Description:

Categorization, the basic cognitive process of arranging objects into
categories, is a fundamental process in human and machine intelligence and
is central to investigations and research in cognitive science. Until now,
categorization has been approached from singular disciplinary perspectives
with little overlap or communication between the disciplines involved
(Linguistics, Psychology, Philosophy, Neuroscience, Computer Science,
Cognitive Anthropology). Henri Cohen and Claire Lefebvre have gathered
together a stellar collection of contributors in this unique, ambitious
attempt to bring together converging disciplinary and conceptual
perspectives on this topic.

"Categorization is a key concept across the range of cognitive sciences,
including linguistics and philosophy, yet hitherto it has been hard to find
accounts that go beyond the concerns of one or two individual disciplines.
The Handbook of Categorization in Cognitive Science provides just the sort
of interdisciplinary approach that is necessary to synthesize knowledge
from the different fields and provide the basis for future innovation."
Professor Bernard Comrie, Department of Linguistics, Max Planck Institute
for Evolutionary Anthropology, Germany

"Anyone concerned with language, semantics, or categorization will want to
have this encyclopedic collection."
Professor Eleanor Rosch, Dept of Psychology, University of California,
Berkeley, USA
