The Neuroscience of Language and Thought, Dr. George Lakoff Professor of Linguistics

We think with our brains. How is this possible? How can meaningful ideas arise from neurons, even billions of them? How can language, with its intricate structure, be a product of a physical brain? If all ideas are physical, what are abstract ideas, like freedom and morality? We are approaching an answer. Lakoff’s current research covers many areas of Conceptual Analysis within Cognitive Linguistics: (i) The nature of human conceptual systems, especially metaphor systems for concepts such as time, events, causation, emotions, morality, the self, politics, etc. May 26th, 2011
