Title: Bi-Directionality in the Cognitive Sciences
Subtitle: Avenues, challenges, and limitations
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/hcp.30
Series Title: Human Cognitive Processing 30
Description:

Cognitive science is the interdisciplinary study of the human mind. As far
as the exact relationship between the cognitive sciences and other fields
is concerned, however, it appears that interdisciplinary exchange often
remains unrealized, possibly because of the uni-directional application of
theories, concepts, and methods, which impedes the productive transfer of
knowledge in both directions. In the course of the ‘cognitive turn’ in the
humanities and social sciences, many disciplines have selectively borrowed
ideas from ‘core cognitive sciences’ like psychology and artificial
intelligence. The day-to-day practice of interdisciplinarity thus thrives
on one-directional borrowings.

Focusing on cognitive approaches in linguistics and literary studies, this
volume explores bi-directionality, a genuine transdisciplinary
interchange in which both disciplines are borrowing and lending. The
contributions take different perspectives on bi-directionality: some extend
uni-directional borrowing practices and point to avenues and crossroads,
while others critically discuss obstacles, challenges, and limitations to
bi-directional transfer.
