9780080446127: Handbook of Categorization in Cognitive Science

Categorization, the basic cognitive process of arranging objects into categories, is a fundamental process in human and machine intelligence and is central to investigations and research in cognitive science. Until now, categorization has been approached from singular disciplinary perspectives with little overlap or communication between the disciplines involved (Linguistics, Psychology, Philosophy, Neuroscience, Computer Science, Cognitive Anthropology). Henri Cohen and Claire Lefebvre have gathered together a stellar collection of contributors in this unique, ambitious attempt to bring together converging disciplinary and conceptual perspectives on this topic. 'Categorization is a key concept across the range of cognitive sciences, including linguistics and philosophy, yet hitherto it has been hard to find accounts that go beyond the concerns of one or two individual disciplines. "The Handbook of Categorization in Cognitive Science" provides just the sort of interdisciplinary approach that is necessary to synthesize knowledge from the different fields and provide the basis for future innovation' - Professor Bernard Comrie, Department of Linguistics, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Germany. 'Anyone concerned with language, semantics, or categorization will want to have this encyclopedic collection' - Professor Eleanor Rosch, Dept of Psychology, University of California, Berkeley, USA.

Review:

"Categorization is a key concept across the range of cognitive sciences, including linguistics and philosophy, yet hitherto it has been hard to find accounts that go beyond the concerns of one or two individual disciplines. [This book] provides just the sort of interdisciplinary approach that is necessary to synthesize knowledge from the different fields and provide the basis for future innovation." -- Professor Bernard Comrie, Department of Linguistics, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Germany "Anyone concerned with language, semantics, or categorization will want to have this encyclopedic collection." -- Professor Eleanor Rosch, Dept of Psychology, University of California, Berkeley, USA "This is a far-reaching, encyclopedia collection, which fully meets its major aim in bringing in, for the first time, various disciplines together around a single theme such as categorization. The joint work invested in the collection results in cross-fertilization of methodologies and ideas, which, as a whole, contributes greatly not only to our understanding of categorization but of human cognition in general. One of this volume's strengths is a number of common themes running through all the chapters...this is a very coherent and solid collection that is organized in such a ways that individual chapters can be studied independently from each other...a valuable contribution to the concept of category/categorization, which, in addition, shows that an interdisciplineary approach is not only powerful, but essential for studying cognitive science as a whole." --Aleksandar Carapic (Universtiy of Belgrade) for PRAGMATICS & COGNITION
