Title: From Body to Meaning in Culture
Subtitle: Papers on cognitive semantic studies of Chinese
Written By: Ning Yu
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=Z%20149
Description:

From the perspective of Cognitive Semantics and Conceptual Metaphor Theory,
this collection of papers looks at the relationship between language, body,
culture, and cognition. In particular, it looks into the embodied nature of
human language and cognition as arising from and situated in the cultural
environment. The papers in this collection all attempt to demonstrate, from
different angles, the language-body connections that may reflect, to some
extent, the mind-body connections as manifested in the interaction between
the body and the physical and cultural world. They study language in a
systematic way as a window into the human mind. As a collection of papers
that focuses on the study of Chinese with a comparative viewpoint on
English, it sheds light on the bodily basis of human meaning and
understanding in particular cultural contexts.
