CaL2017

Cognition and Language

e-mail: conference@ibrak.cz

SCSP (Society for Cognitive Science and Philosophy) and BRAK (Brno Analytic Circle), in cooperation with Department of Philosophy and Faculty of Arts at Masaryk University, are inviting you to conference on cognition and language CaL2017.

Language is a research topic shared by many fields of study such as linguistics, logic, philosophy, psychology, etc. We believe that cognitive science represents the next possible direction, which can lead to new understanding of the phenomena. The main aim of CaL2017 is to show how cognitive science can enhance the more traditional approaches to natural and/or artificial languages and bring new insights.
