Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book is both interesting and provocative. Fauconnier introduces the appealing idea that much of our talk serves to construct what he calls mental spaces--cognitive structures that include elements corresponding to individuals, their properties, and their relations." Language

"...Mental Spaces describes a theory of human knowledge representation and linguistic processing that provides a simple and uniform account of a wide variety of problems that have long perplexed both linguists and philosophers of language." John Dinsmore, Cognitive Science
