Cognition, culture, and the arts: interdisciplinary perspectives on narrating, understanding, and reading

Peter Hanenberg (Editor), Wolfgang Hallet (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportAnthologypeer-review

Abstract

The aim of the volume is to show in which sense the study of culture, literature and the arts can contribute to a better understanding of human cognition. The collection of essays is questioning whether culture is exclusively human and discusses evolutionary substrates of narrative and the interfaces between culture, stories and cognition. The contributions examine the cognitive strengths and weaknesses of literary reading and analyse other techniques of sense-making in the arts through imagined dialogues and the experience of ambiguity. The final contributions are dealing with musical cognition, the relation between music, aesthetics and cognition.
