About this product
- DescriptionLandmark publications by G. Lakoff and M. Johnson in 1987 established image schemas among the cornerstone concepts of the emerging paradigm of Cognitive Linguistics. The pre-linguistic, dynamic and highly schematic gestalt patterns arising from motor movement, object manipulation, and perceptual interaction were posited as the cognitive anchors linking abstract reasoning and imagination to bodily experience. Ever since its introduction, the tion has inspired much research and debate on diverse issues from the meaning, structure and acquisition of natural languages to the embodied mind itself. From Perception to Meaning unites original papers by leading scholars outlining the current state-of-the-art in image-schema theory.
