Friday’s Footprint: How Society Shapes the Human Mind

One of the standard thought experiments in philosophy involves a congenital Crusoe, a human being growing up in complete isolation, like Robinson Crusoe before he meets Friday. In Friday's Footprint, psychiatrist Leslie Brothers argues that there is no Crusoe without Friday: we are evolved to be social animals, and our minds can only be said to function in a social context. Just as gold's value derives not from its chemical composition but from public agreement, the essence of thought is not its isolated neural basis, but its social use. Brothers provides a thorough (though somewhat jargon-laden) tour of current research on the social functions of the brain. She has a particularly interesting discussion of psychoanalysis, which she uses as an example of how thought is molded by conversation.

Thoughts, Words and Things- An Introduction to Late Mediaeval Logic and Semantic Theory

Introduction by the author: The purpose of this book, as its subtitle says, is to introduce readers to late mediaeval logic and semantic theory. By ldquo;late mediaeval,rdquo; I do not mean the really late period, at the end of the fifteenth century, say. Rather I mean the fourteenth century, primarily, and only the first half of it at that. (That is ldquo;laterdquo; in comparison with Boethius, certainly, and even in comparison with Peter of Spain and William of Sherwood a century earlier.) This is the period on which I have concentrated the bulk of my research, so naturally itrsquo;s the period Irsquo;m best in a position to talk about. Nevertheless, to give the reader a running start, I have included a kind of overview in Ch. 2, below, of the history of logic up to the end of the Middle Ages, including the periods before and after the time we will be mainly focusing on.

Syntactic Anchors: On Semantic Structuring

One of the major arenas for debate within generative grammar is the nature of paradigmatic relations among words. Intervening in key debates at the interface between syntax and semantics, this book examines the relation between structure and meaning, and analyses how it affects the internal properties of words and corresponding syntactic manifestations. Adapting notions from the Evo-Devo project in biology (the idea of 'co-linearity' between structural units and behavioural manifestations) Juan Uriagereka addresses a major puzzle: how words can be both decomposable so as to be acquired by children, and atomic, so that they do not manifest themselves as modular to adults.
