The Literary Mind, Paperback

The Literary Mind Paperback



Mark Turner makes the revolutionary claim that the basic issue for cognitive science is the nature of literary thinking.

Using tools of modern linguistics, the recent work of neuroscientists, and literary masterpieces from Shakespeare, Homer, and Dante, Turner explains how story and projection are fundamental to everyday thought.
