Metonymy: Hidden Shortcuts in Language, Thought and Communication (Cambridge Studies in Cognitive Linguistics)
Metonymy: Hidden Shortcuts in Language, Thought and Communication (Cambridge Studies in Cognitive Linguistics)

'Metonymy' is a type of figurative language used in everyday conversation, a form of shorthand that allows us to use our shared knowledge to communicate with fewer words than we would otherwise need. 'I'll pencil you in' and 'let me give you a hand' are both examples of metonymic language. Metonymy serves a wide...

Clothes and Monasticism in Ancient Christian Egypt (Routledge Studies in Religion)
Clothes and Monasticism in Ancient Christian Egypt (Routledge Studies in Religion)

This book is an exploration of the ideals and values of the ascetic and monastic life, as expressed through clothes. Clothes are often seen as an extension of us as humans, a determinant of who we are and how we experience and interact with the world. In this way, they can play a significant role in the embodied and...

Reference and Computation: An Essay in Applied Philosophy of Language (Studies in Natural Language Processing)
Reference and Computation: An Essay in Applied Philosophy of Language (Studies in Natural Language Processing)
This book deals with a major problem in the study of language: the problem of reference. The ease with which we refer to things in conversation is deceptive. Upon closer scrutiny, it turns out that we hardly ever tell each other explicitly what object we mean, although we expect our interlocutor to discern it. Amichai Kronfeld provides an answer...
Kant's 'Critique of Practical Reason': A Critical Guide (Cambridge Critical Guides)
Kant's 'Critique of Practical Reason': A Critical Guide (Cambridge Critical Guides)

The idea for this project grew out of a conversation between Jens Timmermann, Steve Engstrom and Andrews Reath at a conference on Kant’s moral philosophy hosted by Peking University in May 2004. We believe that Andy suggested that there was a need for a volume of new essays on the Critique of Practical Reason, and Jens suggested that we...

The Iterated Prisoners' Dilemma: 20 Years on (Advances in Natural Computation)
The Iterated Prisoners' Dilemma: 20 Years on (Advances in Natural Computation)
In 1984, Robert Axelrod reported the results of two iterated prisoner's dilemma (IPD) competitions [Axelrod (1984)]. The booked was to be a catalyst for much of the research in this area since that time. It is unlikely that you would write a scientific paper about IPD, without citing Axelrod's 1984 book. The book is even more remarkable in that it...
Nietzsche's Protestant Fathers: A Study in Prodigal Christianity
Nietzsche's Protestant Fathers: A Study in Prodigal Christianity

Nietzsche was famously an atheist, despite coming from a strongly Protestant family. This heritage influenced much of his thought, but was it in fact the very thing that led him to his atheism? This work provides a radical re-assessment of Protestantism by documenting and extrapolating Nietzsche’s view that Christianity dies...
