Language, the individual, and the world
Examines the role of language as a mediating, cultural-historical artifact in the development of the individual human consciousness and the subsequent influence of language in the perception of the world of phenomena. Approaches the question through phenomenology (Husserl, Merleau-Ponty, Derrida); the Soviet school of psychology (Vygotsky); communications (Cole, Wertsch) and cognitive neuroscience (Edelman).
