Toward the end of the 20th century, there is both a dissatisfaction with
existing formal semantic theories and a wish to preserve insights from
other semantic traditions. Cognitive semantics, the latest of the major
trends which have dominated the century, attempts to do this by focusing
on meaning as a cognitive phenomenon. This book provides different
perspectives on meaning as a cognitive phenomenon. Jens Allwood presents
an approach where meaning is analyzed in terms of context sensitive
cognitive operations. Peter Gardenfors examines the relationship between
cognitive semantics and standard formal extensional and intensional
semantics. Peter Harder discusses the relation between functionalism and
cognitive semantics. Soren Sjostrom and Ake Viberg extend a cognitive
semantic approach to new empirical domains like vision and physical
contact. Elisabeth Engberg-Pedersen extends the use of cognitive semantics
even further in order to analyze deaf sign language and, finally, Kenneth
Holmqvist and Jordan Zlatev discuss two different possibilities of
implementing a cognitive semantic approach using computer programs.
The variety of perspectives on cognitive semantics make this book suitable
as course material.
