Pragmatics & Cognition 	

Call Deadline: 31 Dec 2004


First special issue in the series Cognition and Technology: New
Technologies and the Pragmatics of Cognition

Editors: Marcelo Dascal and Itiel Dror

For full details, see:

Unlike the Cartesian mind, whose cognitive activity was allegedly
performed in isolation from the external world, today it is widely
acknowledged that cognition is intertwined in the external context and
extremely sensitive to it. In this sense, it is typically a pragmatic
phenomenon. It is also widely recognized today that the technological
environment became a major component of the context within which
cognition occurs. Technology's interaction with cognition is
so extensive that it perhaps changes the nature of cognition itself.

This first of a series of special issues of Pragmatics & Cognition
devoted to the relationships between technologies and cognition will
explore the role of technology, particularly of the new
cognition-related technologies, as an important factor to be taken
into account in the pragmatics of cognition. We are calling for papers
analyzing specific examples of such a role as well as discussing the
broader implications of the pace and nature of technological
innovation to the evolution of cognition. Whereas the following
special issues will be each focused on a special kind of technology
and/or cognitive process, this opening issue welcomes contributions
dealing with the cognition-technology interface in any area. It also
encourages submissions discussing the scientific, technological,
philosophical, and human significance of the coming together of
cognition and technology.

Deadline for submissions: 31 December 2004

Publication: Summer 2005
