Product Description


This book will be of interest to professional researchers and graduate students in linguistics, psychology, and cognitive neuroscience, especially those who are interested in the rapidly evolving field of “embodied cognition”. In recent years this field has been drawing a tremendous amount of attention, and the contributors in this book are major players in the field. Together, the chapters offer a review of the existing literature, an exploration of theoretical issues, and present new data. Researchers and graduate students in the field of embodied cognition will find this collection of cutting-edge perspectives on key issues to be useful reading. – David Kemmerer, Professor of Psychology, Purdue University, USA

Written by some of the leaders in the field, this cutting edge compilation will be invaluable to scientists and students interested in the expanding field of embodied and situated cognition. The book provides an in-depth treatment of the latest thinking and controversies in not only the embodiment of action semantics, but also the evolution of language, relationship between gestures and language, and representation of spatial, temporal, and numerical concepts. Everyone – from seasoned researchers to sceptics to students – will find something new and valuable here. – Rutvik H. Desai, Assistant Professor of Neurology, Medical College of Wisconsin, USA

This unique and ground-breaking volume, written by some of the leading specialists in the field, will be of great interest to academic researchers and students in cognitive neuroscience, psychology and language science who are interested in the rapidly expanding field of language which is grounded in embodied action. The whole range of theoretical issues, spanning from the motor origins of language, to action and language "in the brain", through to language processing, acquisition and semantics, is comprehensively covered, and debated within a unified and illuminating framework. Readers will find in this cutting-edge review a renewed, up-to-date understanding of key issues. - Didier Bottineau, Chargé de Recherche, CNRS, MoDyCo, Université Paris Ouest, France
