  • The Caldron of Consciousnessby Ralph D. Ellis; Natika Newton

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2000; US$ 102.00

    From a neuropsychological perspective, awareness of emotions is a complex function involving several components (perceptual decoding and conceptualization, memory and attention, and psychophysiological responses). Pathological conditions of the nervous system as well as certain experimental procedures in healthy persons may induce dissociations of... more...

  • Cognition Distributedby Itiel E. Dror; Stevan Harnad

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2008; US$ 143.00

    The present article examines the potential effects on the translation process of working interactively with a translation memory (TM) system, a tool for storing and sharing previous translations. A TM system automatically divides the source text into sentences presented to the translator one-by-one. Based on observations made in an empirical study... more...

  • Cognitive Technologies and the Pragmatics of Cognitionby Itiel E. Dror

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2007; US$ 128.00

    This paper explores connections between Radical Empiricism (RE), a philosophic attitude developed by William James at the beginning of the 20th century, and Empirical Modelling (EM), an approach to computer-based modelling that has been developed by the author and his collaborators over a number of years. It focuses in particular on how both RE and... more...

  • Consciousness & Emotionby Ralph D. Ellis; Natika Newton

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2005; US$ 180.00

    The papers in this volume of Consciousness & Emotion Book Series are organized around the theme of "enaction." Enactive emotional processes are not merely the recipients of information or the passive victims of input and learning. The organism first is engaged in an ongoing, complex pattern of self-organizational activity, for the purpose of... more...

  • Consciousness Emergingby Renate Bartsch

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2002; US$ 102.00

    This study of the workings of neural networks in perception and understanding of situations and simple sentences shows that, and how, distributed conceptual constituents are bound together in episodes within an interactive/dynamic architecture of sensorial and pre-motor maps, and maps of conceptual indicators (semantic memory) and individuating indicators... more...

  • Consciousness Recoveredby George Mandler

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2002; US$ 102.00

    This integrated approach to the psychology of consciousness arises out of Mandler?s 1975 paper that was seminal in starting the current flood of interest in consciousness. The book starts with this paper, followed by a novel psychological/evolutionary theoretical discussion of consciousness, and then a historically oriented presentation of relevant... more...

  • Curious Emotionsby Ralph D. Ellis

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2005; US$ 149.00

    Emotion drives all cognitive processes, largely determining their qualitative feel, their structure, and in part even their content. Action-initiating centers deep in the emotional brain ground our understanding of the world by enabling us to imagine how we could act relative to it, based on endogenous motivations to engage certain levels of energy... more...

  • Dimensions of Conscious Experienceby Paavo Pylkkänen; Tere Vadén

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2001; US$ 102.00

    It is by now commonly agreed that the proper study of consciousness requires a multidisciplinary approach which focuses on the varieties and dimensions of conscious experience from different angles. This book, which is based on a workshop held at the University of Skövde, Sweden, provides a microcosm of the emerging discipline of consciousness... more...

  • Embodiment in Cognition and Cultureby John Michael Krois; Mats Rosengren; Angela Steidele; Dirk Westerkamp

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2007; US$ 165.00

    This volume shows that the notions of embodied or situated cognition, which have transformed the scientific study of intelligence have the potential to reorient cultural studies as well. The essays adapt and amplify embodied cognition in such different fields as art history, literature, history of science, religious studies, philosophy, biology, and... more...
