Title: Cognitive Technologies and the Pragmatics of Cognition
Edited By: Itiel E. Dror
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=BCT%2012
Series Title: Benjamins Current Topics 12
Description:

Technology has long been a helpful aid in human cognitive activities. With
its growing sophistication and usage, technology is now taking a more
intrinsic and active role in human cognition. The shift from an external
aid to being an internal component of cognitive processing reflects a
revolution in technology, cognition, and their interaction. The creation of
such 'cognitive technologies' transforms the traditional instrumental
function of technology to a constitutive role that shapes and defines
cognition itself. This book, which was originally published as a Special
Issue of Pragmatics & Cognition (13:3, 2005), explores the new
horizon of these 'cognitive technologies' and their interactions with humans.
