Color Categories in Thought and Language edited by C L Hardin & Luisa Maffi published 1997 Cambridge University Press

£14.00

Product description

Publisher: Cambridge University Press, 1997. Paperback, 404 pages. Cover and book are in good, clean and tight condition with very light shelfwear to cover and a trace of foxing on top page block edge. 'In the early 1960s, Berlin and Kay argued that there are commonalities of basic color term that extend across languages and cultures and probably express universal features of perception and cognition'. This study arose from a conference in 1992 of visual scientists, psychologists, linguists and anthropologists at the Asilomar Conference Centre. 'To what extent can cross-cultural regularities be explained by the operation of the human visual system? What can the study of color categorisation tell us about concept formation?'
