Description - Concepts by Eric Margolis

Traces the development of one of the most active areas of investigation in cognitive science. This volume brings together the background readings from philosophy, psychology and linguistics, while providing a broad sampling of contemporary research. The first part of the book centres around the fall of the classical theory of concepts in the face of attacks by W.V.O. Quine, Ludwig Wittgenstein, Eleanor Rosch and others, emphasizing the emergence and development of the prototype theory and the controversies it spurred. The second part surveys a range of contemporary theories - neoclassical theories, the prototype theory, the theory-theory and conceptual atomism.
