Most widely held works by Mark Johnson
Metaphors we live by by George Lakoff( Book )

74 editions published between 1980 and 2011 in English and held by 2,722 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The now-classic Metaphors We Live By changed our understanding of metaphor and its role in language and the mind. Metaphor, the authors explain, is a fundamental mechanism of mind, one that allows us to use what we know about our physical and social experience to provide understanding of countless other subjects. Because such metaphors structure our most basic understandings of our experience, they are "metaphors we live by"--Metaphors that can shape our perceptions and actions without our ever noticing them
Philosophy in the flesh : the embodied mind and its challenge to Western thought by George Lakoff( Book )

23 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and held by 1,272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reexamines the Western philosophical tradition, looking at the basic concepts of the mind, time, causation, morality, and the self
The body in the mind : the bodily basis of meaning, imagination, and reason by Mark Johnson( Book )

63 editions published between 1987 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 1,259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Moral imagination : implications of cognitive science for ethics by Mark Johnson( Book )

19 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in English and held by 915 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using path-breaking discoveries of cognitive science, Mark Johnson argues that humans are fundamentally imaginative moral animals, challenging the view that morality is simply a system of universal laws dictated by reason. According to the Western moral tradition, we make ethical decisions by applying universal laws to concrete situations. But Johnson shows how research in cognitive science undermines this view and reveals that imagination has an essential role in ethical deliberation. Expanding his innovative studies of human reason in Metaphors We Live By and The Body in the Mind, Johnson provides the tools for more practical, realistic, and constructive moral reflection
The meaning of the body : aesthetics of human understanding by Mark Johnson( Book )

19 editions published between 2007 and 2017 in English and Polish and held by 608 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Meaning of the Body, Mark Johnson examines the nature of human meaning - where it comes from and how it is made. He goes beyond his earlier pioneering work, begun in Metaphors We Live By and The Body in the Mind, to explore the deepest sources of human understanding, which lie in feelings, emotions, qualities, and patterns of bodily perception and motion. Philosophers have traditionally ignored these aspects of embodied meaning, focusing instead on more superficial conceptual and propositional structures. Johnson argues that overlooking these profound dimensions of meaning has left much contemporary philosophy of language and mind out of touch with new research - in cognitive science, psychology, and art - that shows how meaning is possible for embodied human minds."--Jacket
Philosophical perspectives on metaphor by Mark Johnson( Book )

19 editions published between 1981 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Morality for humans : ethical understanding from the perspective of cognitive science by Mark Johnson( Book )

13 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Argues that appealing solely to absolute principles and values is not only scientifically unsound but even morally suspect, and shows that the standards for the kinds of people we should be and how we should treat one another--which we often think of as universal--are in fact frequently subject to change
Leben in Metaphern : Konstruktion und Gebrauch von Sprachbildern by George Lakoff( Book )

Embodied mind, meaning, and reason : how our bodies give rise to understanding by Mark Johnson( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mark Johnson is one of the great thinker of our time on how the body shapes the mind. This book brings together a selection of essays from the past two decades to argue for the central importance of our bodies in everything we experience, mean, think, say, value, and do. This embodied conception of mind shows how meaning and thought are profoundly shaped and constituted by the nature of our bodily perception, action, and feeling. In short, Johnson convincingly argues that it is impossible to understand any of the issues that are so dear to philosophy without a deep and detailed understanding of how our embodiment gives rise to experience, meaning, and thought. Johnson begins with ideas that were anticipated, in part, in the writings of American pragmatist John Dewey, and supplies crucial details from important scientific and philosophical developments that take us beyond what Dewey could provide in his time. By constructing a positive account of human meaning-making that draws on the cognitive science of the embodied mind, Johnson's account runs directly counter to some of the fundamental assumptions in analytic philosophy and early cognitive science of the last seventy-five years. Concluding with a rich exploration of the implications of our embodiment for our understanding of knowledge, reason, and truth, Embodied Mind, Meaning, and Reason is indispensable to all philosophers dealing with mind, thought, and language. -- from back cover
Les métaphores dans la vie quotidienne by George Lakoff( Book )

The aesthetics of meaning and thought : the bodily roots of philosophy, science, morality, and art by Mark Johnson( )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

All too often, we think of our minds and bodies separately. The reality couldn?t be more different: the fundamental fact about our mind is that it is embodied. We have a deep visceral, emotional, and qualitative relationship to the world?and any scientifically and philosophically satisfactory view of the mind must take into account the ways that cognition, meaning, language, action, and values are grounded in and shaped by that embodiment. This book gathers the best of philosopher Mark Johnson?s essays addressing questions of our embodiment as they deal with aesthetics?which, he argues, we need to rethink so that it takes into account the central role of body-based meaning. Viewed that way, the arts can give us profound insights into the processes of meaning making that underlie our conceptual systems and cultural practices. Johnson shows how our embodiment shapes our philosophy, science, morality, and art; what emerges is a view of humans as aesthetic, meaning-making creatures who draw on their deepest physical processes to make sense of the world around them
Metáforas de la vida cotidiana by George Lakoff( Book )

30 editions published between 1980 and 2017 in Spanish and Italian and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pocas obras hacen cambiar de tal forma nuestra visión de la lengua que utilizamos como" Metáforas de la vida cotidiana" . George Lakoff y Mark Johnson, lingüista y filósofo respectivamente, explican cómo la metáfora no es solo un embellecimiento retórico, sino una parte del lenguaje cotidiano que afecta al modo en que percibiƯmos, pensamos y actuamos. Las metáforas impregnan nuestra lengua hasta el extremo de que la familiaridad con ellas impide con frecuencia que sean percibidas como tales. En nuestra cultura, por ejemplo, es muy poderosa la metáfora la discución es una guerra. Decimos de alguien que" se atrincheró en sus posiciones", o" atacamos los puntos débiles del contrario", o" destruimos sus argumentos" hasta salir" vencedoƯres" . Pero lo importante es que no nos limitamos a hablar de la discusión como si fuese una guerra, sino que vemos a la otra parte como un contrincante, nos defendemos, agredimos ... ¿Cómo se viviría la discusión en una cultura en que la metáfora fuera un BAILE en que ambos participantes deben marchar al compás?
Mathematical foundations of speech and language processing by Mark Johnson( )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Speech and language technologies continue to grow in importance as they are used to create natural and efficient interfaces between people and machines, and to automatically transcribe, extract, analyze, and route information from high-volume streams of spoken and written information. The workshops on Mathematical Foundations of Speech Processing and Natural Language Modeling were held in the Fall of 2000 at the University of Minnesota's NSF-sponsored Institute for Mathematics and Its Applications, as part of a "Mathematics in Multimedia" year-long program. Each workshop brought together researchers in the respective technologies on one hand, and mathematicians and statisticians on the other hand, for an intensive week of cross-fertilization. There is a long history of benefit from introducing mathematical techniques and ideas to speech and language technologies. Examples include the source-channel paradigm, hidden Markov models, decision trees, exponential models and formal languages theory. It is likely that new mathematical techniques, or novel applications of existing techniques, will once again prove pivotal for moving the field forward. This volume consists of original contributions presented by participants during the two workshops. Topics include language modeling, prosody, acoustic-phonetic modeling, and statistical methodology

Metafora e vita quotidiana by George Lakoff( Book )

10 editions published between 1998 and 2012 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Per Lakoff e Johnson la metafora è il meccanismo fondamentale non solo del linguaggio quotidiano, ma anche del nostro stesso funzionamento cognitivo. È praticamente impossibile parlare, e di conseguenza pensare, senza fare ricorso a meccanismi metaforici, perché la metafora è lo strumento linguistico che meglio di qualunque altro esprime la nostra interazione corporea col mondo. Analizzandone alcuni sistemi metaforici di base che organizzano in modo sistematico la nostra quotidianità, gli autori dimostrano come pensiero e linguaggio siano condizionati dalla nostra struttura percettiva e come non siano possibili un pensiero e un linguaggio disincarnati e privi di metafore

Embodied cognition and cinema by Maarten Coëgnarts( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The embodied cognition thesis claims that cognitive functions cannot be understood without making reference to the interactions between the brain, the body, and the environment. The meaning of abstract concepts is grounded in concrete experiences. This book is the first edited volume to explore the impact of the embodied cognition thesis on the scientific study of film. A team of scholars analyse the main aspects of film (narrative, style, music, sound, time, the viewer, emotion, perception, ethics, the frame, etc.) from an embodied perspective. By combining insights from various disciplines such as cognitive film theory, conceptual metaphor theory, and cognitive neuroscience, they show how the process of meaning-making in film is embodied and how empathy and embodied simulation play a role in understanding the way in which the viewer interacts with the film."--Page 4 de la couverture
