The relationship of language and thought and the nature of the neurological and physiological processes that support them is one of the most exciting areas of interdisciplinary research in contemporary science. This volume offers a wider0ranging discussion in which 13 eminent scholars and scientists explore the scientific basis for a theory of language and thought. The book resulted from a symposium and held at Cornell University in honor of Eric Lenneberg, a pioneer in this field. The contributors include biologists, psychologists, linguists, and philosophers. They examine and extend recent work in such areas as the theory of biological systems and growth, the neurological bases of language and aphasia, linguistic and cognitive development in children, and the nature of linguistic and mathematical competence.
