Metaphors we live by by George Lakoff( Book )

161 editions published between 1980 and 2015 in 14 languages and held by 3,249 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 )

21 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and held by 1,247 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 869 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
The meaning of the body : aesthetics of human understanding by Mark Johnson( Book )

18 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in English and Polish and held by 591 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 )

16 editions published between 1981 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 513 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 Undetermined and held by 322 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
Elementi di linguistica cognitiva by George Lakoff( Book )

5 editions published between 1998 and 2002 in Italian and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Embodied cognition and cinema by Maarten Coëgnarts( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 15 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

Mathematical foundations of speech and language processing by Mark Johnson( Book )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 12 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. TOC:Probability and statistics in computational linguistics, a brief review * Three issues in modern language modeling * Stochastic analysis of Structured Language Modeling * Latent semantic language modeling for speech recognition * Prosody modeling for automatic speech recognition and understanding * Switching dynamic system models for speech articulation and acoustics * Segmental HMMS: Modeling dynamics and underlying structure in speech * Modelling graph- based observation spaces for segment-based speech recognition * Towards robust and adaptive speech recognition models * Graphical models and automatic speech recognition * An introduction to Markov chain Monte Carlo method * Semiparametric filtering in speech processing

Processes of change in brain and cognitive development by Attention and Performance (Symposium)( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new volume in the highy cited and critically acclaimed Attention and Performance series is the first to provide a systematic investigation into the processes of change in mental development. It brings together world class scientists to address brain and cognitive development at several different levels, including phylogeny, genetics, neurophysiology, brain imaging, behavior, and computational modeling, across both typically and atypically developing populations. Presenting original new research from the frontiers of cognitive neuroscience, this book will have a substantial impact in this field, as well as on developmental psychology and developmental neuroscience.
