On the Cognitive and Logical Role of Image Schemas in Computational Conceptual Blending
MetadataShow full item record
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. In this paper, we discuss a role for image schemas in computational concept creation. We propose to build a library of formalised image schemas, and illustrate how they can guide the search for a base space in the concept invention workflow.
