About the Editor

Henri Cohen

Dr. Henri Cohen’s research interests focus on speech and language development and neurological disorders, learning and emotion in Parkinson’s disease, complexity and learning, skill acquisition and interference, and origin of language. He is Professor of Psychology (ret.) at Université du Québec à Montréal, and visiting scholar, at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, Universidad de la Frontera, Chile. He has published over 100 peer-reviewed articles, and edited two books (with Elsevier) on cognition and consciousness, and on categorization, and a book on the origins of language (Benjamins). He is the current editor of Brain and Cognition (Elsevier), and past editor of Journal of Neurolinguistics (Elsevier).

Reviews

"Categorization is a key concept across the range of cognitive sciences, including linguistics and philosophy, yet hitherto it has been hard to find accounts that go beyond the concerns of one or two individual disciplines. [This book] provides just the sort of interdisciplinary approach that is necessary to synthesize knowledge from the different fields and provide the basis for future innovation." -- Professor Bernard Comrie, Department of Linguistics, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Germany "Anyone concerned with language, semantics, or categorization will want to have this encyclopedic collection." -- Professor Eleanor Rosch, Dept of Psychology, University of California, Berkeley, USA "This is a far-reaching, encyclopedia collection, which fully meets its major aim in bringing in, for the first time, various disciplines together around a single theme such as categorization. The joint work invested in the collection results in cross-fertilization of methodologies and ideas, which, as a whole, contributes greatly not only to our understanding of categorization but of human cognition in general. One of this volume's strengths is a number of common themes running through all the chapters...this is a very coherent and solid collection that is organized in such a ways that individual chapters can be studied independently from each other...a valuable contribution to the concept of category/categorization, which, in addition, shows that an interdisciplineary approach is not only powerful, but essential for studying cognitive science as a whole." --Aleksandar Carapic (Universtiy of Belgrade) for PRAGMATICS & COGNITION
