Key Features

· The discovery of several algorithmic similarities between visison and semantics. · The support of all of this by means of simulations, and the packaging of all of this in a coherent theoretical framework.

Readership

This book is designed primarily for the benefit of linguists, and secondarily for logicians, neurocomputationalists, and philosophers of mind and of language. It may even be of benefit to mathematicians. It will certainly be of benefit to all those that want an introduction to natural language semantics, logic, computationational neuroscience, and cognitive science.
