Reading Minds: The Study of English in the Age of Cognitive Science

Framsida
Princeton University Press, 1991 - 298 sidor

The great adventure of modern cognitive science, the discovery of the human mind, will fundamentally revise our concept of what it means to be human. Drawing together the classical conception of the language arts, the Renaissance sense of scientific discovery, and the modern study of the mind, Mark Turner offers a vision of the central role that language and the arts of language can play in that adventure.
