To what extent is conceptualization based on linguistic representation? And to what extent is it variable across cultures, communities or even individuals? Of crucial importance in the attempt to develop a comprehensive theory of human cognition, these remain among the most difficult questions in the cognitive sciences. This volume brings together ten new contributions from leading scholars working in a wide cross section of disciplines, including linguistics, anthropology, psychology and philosophy.
