Interpretive Approaches to Interpersonal Communication (May 1994)
Kathryn Carter - Editor
Mick Presnell - Editor

This groundbreaking book presents conceptual, theoretical, and applied chapters demonstrating the strengths of interpretive approaches in the study of interpersonal communication. It extends our understanding of interpersonal communication through the incorporation of interpretive and critical theory paradigms. Until now, no text has systematically described interpersonal communication and theory by drawing on insights from interpretive or critica...(Read More)
 
 
Linguistics for Writers
Linguistics for Writers (February 1994)
Colleen Donnelly - Author

"I like the basic conception of the book--bringing linguistics to bear on composing. The summaries of linguistic knowledge are cogent; understandable for non-expert readers without being condescending. I think this book successfully does what some others have tried but failed to do well--translate linguistics in a practical way for rhetorical contexts." -- Evelyn Ashton-Jones, University of Idaho

This book is designed so that writers, teach...(Read More)
 
 
How Reference Works
How Reference Works (August 1993)
Explanatory Models for Indexicals, Descriptions, and Opacity
Lawrence D. Roberts - Author

"This is a book about how certain referring expressions in a natural language (English) manage to refer to objects in the world when used by speakers. Within the philosophy of language, the problem of reference has never been adequately solved. When viewed as a work in the philosophy of language, this book offers an interesting approach (if not a solution) to the problem of reference. However, the book's appeal is much broader than the philosophy...(Read More)
 
 
Knowledge, Evolution and Paradox
Knowledge, Evolution and Paradox (August 1993)
The Ontology of Language
Koen DePryck - Author

"It is already clear that postmodernism is an unsatisfactory view of the world: the skepticism, antifoundationalism, and distrust of any form of narrative or argument that has characterized this last phase of modernism cannot long resist its own corrosive critique. What view of the world will succeed postmodernism? To answer this question, it is necessary to take up several challenges abandoned along the way as metaphysical, insoluble in terms of...(Read More)
 
 
Natural and Artificial Minds
Natural and Artificial Minds (August 1993)
Robert G. Burton - Editor

This book describes and explores six current approaches to the study of mind: the neuroscientific, the behavioral, the competence approach, the ecological, the phenomenological, and the computational. No other book in cognitive science covers such a broad range of research programs and topics in such a balanced fashion. The first chapter is a mini-history and philosophy of psychology which reviews some of the scientific developments and philosophic...(Read More)
 
 
Gaps in Nature
Gaps in Nature (July 1993)
Literary Interpretation and the Modular Mind
Ellen Spolsky - Author

"Cognitive Science is arguably the most important intellectual development of the post World War II period. Literary theory, however, has failed almost completely to cope with this fundamental change in the intellectual climate. Spolsky's book is a pioneering effort in this regard. The argument is adventuresome and fresh. Unlike so much of the work which is now being published, it is not a rehash of a re-hash, etc. This is news.

Understanding Language Acquisition
Understanding Language Acquisition (July 1993)
The Framework of Learning
Christina E. Erneling - Author

How is language acquisition possible? How is it that humans, within a few years of birth, can speak and understand language, transcending both its limited experience and biological limitations?

In this challenge to the narrow confines of psychology and philosophy, Christina Erneling argues that language acquisition results from the interaction between linguistic creativity inherent in language and a biological and social framework of learnin...(Read More)
 
 
Ineffability
Ineffability (March 1993)
The Failure of Words in Philosophy and Religion
Ben-Ami Scharfstein - Author

"The topic is so extremely significant, yet it is one of those issues that lie so deep and are so fundamental that we rarely pause to consider them because (perhaps) they are the ground on which we stand." -- Robert Campany, Indiana University

Scharfstein describes the extraordinary powers that have been attributed to language everywhere, and then looks at ineffability as it has appeared in the thought of the great philosophical cultures: In...(Read More)
 
 
Psychology and Nihilism
Psychology and Nihilism (December 1992)
A Genealogical Critique of the Computational Model of Mind
Fred Evans - Author

"Evans' most brilliant stroke consists of demonstrating that cognitive psychology must presuppose the very sorts of things which it presumes it can do without, e.g., tacit understanding and an intimate relation to the life-world. Moreover, Evans suggests that a more positive and productive model of psychology can be devised if attention is paid to the idea of a 'transfigurative rationality' which underlies and surpasses the 'technocratic rationalit...(Read More)
