|Title:||On the Cognitive and Logical Role of Image Schema in Conceptual Blending|
In cognitive science image schemas are identified as the fundamental patterns for the cognition of objects, which are perceived, conceptualised and manipulated in space and time. The talk will introduce the theories of image schema and conceptual blending, and discuss the connection to computational concept creation. Image schema will be discussed in relation to analogical thinking and how they could be utilized in the base space of formalised approaches to conceptual blending.
