Meeting Description:

The theme of the 2017 seminar is “Ecological Cognition and Metaphor”. The goal
of the seminar is to relate the newest tendencies within cognitive science to
the study of metaphor and other forms of figurative language. In recent years
a new way of looking at the notion of cognition is gaining ground, often
labelled as 4E-cognition (embodied, enacted, embedded and extended cognition).
The basic claim is that cognition cannot be reserved to individual processes
in the head (and body) only; rather cognition is seen as “a doing”; it is
something we do in our active and explorative sense-making with the bio-social
environment. Thus, an ecological turn is on its way within cognitive science
that seeks to explore thought, feeling and action as inter-related dimensions
of an agent-environment system. The seminar will investigate these new
approaches in relation to the study of metaphor, i.e.: If cognition is no
longer to be seen as solely a property of the individual mind where does it
leave a cognitive approach to metaphor? Can we investigate metaphor as
evolving constraints on experience, thought and feeling within a distributed
cognitive system? What is the role of metaphor in the creation of the
interpersonal mind, e.g., how can metaphors be studied as affordances for
joint action and thinking?
