About This Item We aim to show you accurate product information. The third chapter attempts to finally put to rest postmodern epistemology and ontology, a move that he contends will remove the intellectual miasma in the academy today. He notes herein that linguistic and cultural constructivism is simply false. It explicates how a shared embodied mind could produce the sort of cultural variety that is the single most salient phenomena to humanists.

The bulk of this chapter is devoted to voluntary, temporary, and partial synaethesia, that is, metaphor, analogy, and metaphoric blends. This chapter concludes with a discussion of how culture and language shape the human mind. It is in response to this chapter that I offer my single criticism of this title: it should have incorporated more discussion regarding emergence, for it is in fact a viable alternative to physicalist reductionism.

This title is not only useful for a very broad academic audience, however, but also for interested general readers. In sum, it addresses the particular concerns of humanists and provides non-specialists with a helpful introduction to cognitive science. It is essentially a constructive and coherent response, one that is empirically responsible, to objectivist and postmodernist approaches to the study of culture, a response that also posits what humanists might gain from dialogue with the natural sciences.
Not only this, however, but Slingerland also asserts that humanists have much to contribute to the study of natural science. This book should be read by those interested in interdisciplinary reflection between the sciences and the humanities.
