Boek cover Relevance van Dan Sperber (Paperback)
Communication and Cognition
Relevance, first published in 1986, was named as one of the most important and influential books of the decade in the Times Higher Educational Supplement. This revised edition includes a new Preface outlining developments in Relevance Theory since 1986, discussing the more serious criticisms of the theory, and envisaging possible revisions or extensions.

To communicate is to claim someonea s...

Boek cover Explaining Culture van Dan Sperber (Paperback)
A Naturalistic Approach
Ideas, Dan Sperber argues, may be contagious. They may invade whole populations. In the process, the people, their environment, and the ideas themselves are being transformed.

This book will be read by all those with an interest in the impact of the cognitive revolution on our understanding of culture.

Boek cover Metarepresentations van Sperber (Paperback)
A Multidisciplinary Perspective
This volume in the Vancouver Studies in Cognitive Science series concerns metarepresentation: the construction and use of representations that represent other representations. Metarepresentations are ubiquitous among human beings, whenever we think or talk about mental states or linguistic acts, or theorize about the mind or language. This volume collects previously unpublished studies on the subject by an interdisciplinary group of contributors, including Daniel Dennett, Alvin Goldman, Keith Lehrer, Leda Cosmides and John Tooby.

Boek cover Meaning and Relevance van Deirdre Wilson (Hardcover)
When people speak, their words never fully encode what they mean, and the context is always compatible with a variety of interpretations. How can comprehension ever be achieved? Wilson and Sperber argue that comprehension is a process of inference guided by precise expectations of relevance. What are the relations between the linguistically encoded meanings studied in semantics and the thoughts that humans are capable of entertaining and conveying? How should we analyse literal meaning, approximations, metaphors and ironies? Is the ability to understand speakers' meanings rooted in a more...

Boek cover The Enigma of Reason van Dan Sperber (Paperback)
A New Theory of Human Understanding
If reason is what makes us human, then why do we humans often behave so irrationally? Taking us from desert ants to Aristotle, cognitive psychologists Hugo Mercier and Dan Sperber explore how our 'flawed superpower' of reason works, how it doesn't, and how it evolved to help us develop as social beings. 'Original and provocative ... likely to have a big impact on our understanding of ourselves' Steven Pinker 'Brilliant, elegant and compelling ... turns reason's weaknesses into strengths, arguing that its supposed flaws are actually design features that work remarkably well ... A timely...

Boek cover Dan Sperber - Rethinking Symbolism van Nadia Cohen (Onbekend)
'Im Symbolismus gibt es keinen Code, keine Bedeutung und keine Symbole!' So oder so ähnlich könnte man zugespitzt die provokantesten Thesen in Sperbers Buch 'Le symbolisme en général - Rethinking symbolism' formulieren. In der Tat geht es Sperber in erster Linie darum, einige der Grundannahmen bisheriger Symbolismus-Theorien, insbesondere des semiologischen Konzepts, in Frage zu stellen. Er greift hierzu einige der bekanntesten Theorien auf, jeweils unter dem Gesichtspunkt der von ihm kritisierten Konzepte von 'Bedeutung', 'Symbolismus als Code', 'Symbolismus als Aneinanderreihung von...

Boek cover The Enigma of Reason van Hugo Mercier (Paperback)
Brilliant...Timely and necessary. -Financial Times Especially timely as we struggle to make sense of how it is that individuals and communities persist in holding beliefs that have been thoroughly discredited. -Darren Frey, Science If reason is what makes us human, why do we behave so irrationally?

Boek cover The Enigma of Reason van Hugo Mercier (Onbekend)
Reason, we are told, is what makes us human, the source of our knowledge and wisdom. If reason is so useful, why didn't it also evolve in other animals? If reason is that reliable, why do we produce so much thoroughly reasoned nonsense? In their groundbreaking account of the evolution and workings of reason, Hugo Mercier and Dan Sperber set out to solve this double enigma. Reason, they argue with a compelling mix of real-life and experimental evidence, is not geared to solitary use, to arriving at better beliefs and decisions on our own. What reason does, rather, is help us justify our...
