Volume I: Collecting the work of linguists, psychologists, neuroscientists, artificial intelligence researchers and philosophers this volume presents a richly varied picture of the nature and function of mental states.

Volume II: The contributions to this volume focus on what language and language use reveals about cognitive structure and underlying cognitive categories. Wide-ranging and thought-provoking essays from linguists and psychologists within this volume investigate the insights conceptual categorization can give into the organization and structure of the mind and specific mental states.

“Issues covered in these chapters are at the cutting edge of thinking in a range of disciplines such as linguistics, psychology and cognitive science. These volumes add to the linguistic resources on themes of mind, language, and cognition, and contains insights that graduate students would do well to incorporate in their inquiries. Though there are many volume of collected papers available in this genre, these volumes stand out because of their extensive coverage and inclusion of disciplines as diverse as archeology, linguistics, and AI. They therefor truly represent the multidisciplinary ethos and research program of contemporary cognitive science. I recommend these volumes to anyone who wants to have a first hand experience of the most contemporary issues and discussions on the nature of mind and mental states.”
