Pragmatics, Philosophy and Cognitive Science
Edited by: Dr Antonino Pennisi, Dr Alessandra Falzone and Dr Alessandro Capone
It is our pleasure to introduce the Article Collection on Pragmatics, Philosophy and Cognitive Science.
This Collection invites both experimental and theoretical articles in cognitive sciences, including papers on the pragmatics of language. Cognitive sciences include many different research fields sharing a methodological approach on mental abilities both in humans and in animals. Since their formulation, Cognitive sciences obtained spectacular achievements about the functioning of the human mind; in particular the study of language has offered an advantage in so far as speech pathologies and other animal communication problems allowed us to expand our knowledge on real mechanisms operating in human language.
The articles offer a panorama of the most recent trends in cognitive sciences in connection with the language faculty.
Part of this Collection explores the issue of intentionality, and how pragmatics can augment the expressive potential of a language by using aspects of the context codified in a number of cues and clues.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Cognitive science
- Comparative Psychology
- Speech pathology
The Collection will also consider so-called ‘negative result’ studies.
If your manuscript meets the aims and scope of this individual Collection, please first follow all of the SpringerPlus Submission Guidelines.
During submission, at the "Additional Information" section, please select that you are submitting to an Article Collection, and choose “Pragmatics, Philosophy and Cognitive Science” from the list.
