Title: Aristote et le Lexique de l'Espace
Written By: Claude Vandeloise
Description:

Book description (in English):
With the present monograph, Aristote et le Lexique de l'Espace,
Vandeloise both continues his exploration of this vital question and also initiates a broader, more basic investigation of thought and meaning in the spatial domain. This innovative work is novel in its conception and elegant in its execution. Three main concerns are productively brought together in a mutually revelatory fashion: besides French locatives, these include the tacit naive physics presupposed by the meanings of linguistic elements, as well as the building blocks and intrinsic organization of our conceptualizations in the physical realm. Perhaps surprisingly, and certainly provocatively, it is in the physics of Aristotle and his commentators that Vandeloise sees a correspondence between a representation of the physical world and the conceptual system underlying the linguistic description of space.
