Over at the website of the International Cognition and Culture Institute there’s a book club on Thom Scott-Phillips 2014 book “Speaking Our Minds: Why human communication is different, and how language evolved to make it special” (Thom has written a guest post for Replicated Typo previewing the book, which you can find here).
As of now, there are 16 responses on the blog from various reseachers from different disciplines along with responses by Thom.
Researchers who have commented on various aspects of “Speaking Our Minds” include, for example,
- the founders of Relevance Theory,
- Katja Liebal (“A closer look at communication among our closest relatives”)
- evolutionary linguists
And many others.
Well worth a a read, go check it out!
