  • These spatiotemporal relationships can be found in human cognition as information skeletons for analogical reasoning, as a grounding factor for abstract language, and as conceptual building blocks for concepts and events
  • The book will be of value to researchers in artificial intelligence, cognitive science, psychology, and creativity

About this book

In this book the author's theoretical framework builds on linguistic and psychological research, arguing that similar image-schematic notions should be grouped together into interconnected family hierarchies, with complexity increasing with regard to the addition of spatial and conceptual primitives. She introduces an image schema logic as a language to model image schemas, and she shows how the semantic content of image schemas can be used to improve computational concept invention.

The book will be of value to researchers in artificial intelligence, cognitive science, psychology, and creativity.
