  • Death Is the Mother of Beautyby Mark Turner

    Cybereditions 2000; US$ 12.95

    In this book, Mark Turner shows that the languages of literature and everyday life are different expressions of the same universal mechanisms of the mind. Drawing on the languages and metaphors of kinship and causation, and on myriad examples in English literature from Chaucer to Wallace Stevens, he argues convincingly that all our thinking with... more...

  • Cognitive Dimensions of Social Scienceby Mark Turner

    Oxford University Press 2001; US$ 33.99

    In this work, Mark Turner offers a picture of how humanistic and cognitive scientific study of meaning could combine with social scientific study of meaning to create a new field, "cognitive social science". In his conclusion, he charts the agenda for cognitive social science. more...

  • The Artful Mindby Mark Turner

    Oxford University Press, USA 2006; US$ 29.99

    All normal human beings alive in the last fifty thousand years appear to have possessed, in Mark Turner's phrase, "irrepressibly artful minds." Cognitively modern minds produced a staggering list of behavioral singularities--science, religion, mathematics, language, advanced tool use, decorative dress, dance, culture, art--that seems... more...

  • The Literary Mindby Mark Turner

    Oxford University Press, USA 1996; US$ 12.99

    We usually consider literary thinking to be peripheral and dispensable, an activity for specialists: poets, prophets, lunatics, and babysitters. Certainly we do not think it is the basis of the mind. We think of stories and parables from Aesop's Fables or The Thousand and One Nights, for example, as exotic tales set in strange lands, with spectacular... more...

  • Trollope and the Magazinesby Mark Turner

    Palgrave Macmillan 1999; US$ 150.00

    Trollope and the Magazines examines the serial publication of several of Trollope's novels in the context of the gendered discourses in a range of Victorian magazines - including Cornhill, Good Words, Saint Pauls , and the Fortnightly Review . It highlights the importance of the periodical press in the literary culture of Victorian Britain, and... more...

  • The Origin of Ideasby Mark Turner

    Oxford University Press, USA 2014; US$ 21.99

    What makes human beings so innovative, so adept at rapid, creative thinking? Where do new ideas come from, and once we have them, how can we carry them mentally into new situations? What allows our thinking to range easily over time, space, causation, and agency-so easily that we take this truly remarkable ability for granted? In The Origin of Ideas,... more...

  • The Sociology of Wilhelm Baldamusby Mark Erickson; Charles Turner

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2010; US$ 119.95

    The Sociology of Wilhelm Baldamus explores Baldamus’s concern that research should be underpinned by meticulous theoretical and conceptual work. It will be of interest to sociologists, social theorists, intellectual historians, and those working in the field of social science research methods. more...

  • Clear and Simple as the Truthby Francis-NoŽl Thomas; Mark Turner

    Princeton University Press 2011; US$ 23.95

    For more than a decade, Clear and Simple as the Truth has guided readers to consider style not as an elegant accessory of effective prose but as its very heart. Francis-NoŽl Thomas and Mark Turner present writing as an intellectual activity, not a passive application of verbal skills. In classic style, the motive is truth, the purpose is presentation,... more...
