dc.description.abstractIt is impossible to talk about human cognition without talking about concepts—there simply is no human cognition without concepts. Concepts form an abstraction of reality that is central to the functioning of the human mind. Conceptual knowledge (of e.g., APPLE, LOVE and BEFORE) is crucial for us to categorize, understand, and reason about the world. Only equipped with concepts and words for them can we successfully communicate and carry out actions. But what exactly are concepts? How are concepts acquired? How does the human mind use concepts? In this introduction chapter, we elaborate on these questions (i.e., representation, learning, application), and provide summaries of the seven individual chapters in the volume, which from different scientific disciplines relate to one or the other of the questions. © 2021, The Author(s).
