Talking About Learning: Metaphor in the Mind and Hands
NSSR assistant professor of Psychology Daniel Cassasanto’s research examines how language,
culture, and bodily experiences influence the way people think, feel, and make
decisions. In his blog, “The Malleable Mind” on the Psychology Today website, Cassasanto
makes these issues in cognitive science comprehensible to a broader
audience. This talk examines the ways that
space structures our abstract concepts, and how using the body according to the
spatial schemas in our minds can promote learning.
This workshop is open to members of the university community only.
