Au-Dela des Descriptions Geometriques et Logiques de L'espace
Une Description Fonctionnelle
Which is the best way of describing spatial prepositions? Even though geometry and logic provide rigorous and useful tools for this undertaking, I will show that they fall short from describing completely these prepositions. A complete description must take into consideration the movement and the function of their prepositional terms as well as cognitive notions like access to perception, potential meeting, the relationship container/ contained, etc. General orientation, a family resemblance concept whose main features are the frontal direction, the direction of movement and the line of sight, is also needed.
