    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Meaning; interpretive; social-ecological system; complexity; science-policy interface; transformation; sustainability science methodology; vetenskap om hållbar utveckling; Sustainability Science;

    Sammanfattning : Social-ecological systems research is interventionist by nature. As a subset of sustainability science, social-ecological systems research aims to generate knowledge and introduce concepts that will bring about transformation. Yet scientific concepts diverge in innumerable ways when they are put to work in the world. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Over the past few decades, the rapid development of information communication technology, internationalization and globalization worldwide have required a shift in the focus of Chinese as a foreign language (CFL) towards competence in intercultural communication in which the role of culture in the acquisition of CFL and in the pragmatic use of the language is emphasized and promoted. However, most of the current research in this academic area remains only on a theoretical level. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Mind in Action Action Representation and the Perception of Biological Motion

    Detta är en avhandling från Lund University

    Författare :Paul Hemeren; Högskolan i Skövde.; Högskolan i Skövde.; [2008]
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; SOCIAL SCIENCES Other social sciences Civics; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Övrig samhällsvetenskap Samhällsvetenskap; Humanities and Social sciences; Humaniora-samhällsvetenskap; action; perception; concept; Cognition; categorization; embodiment; prototype; biological motion; semantics; language; configural processing; basic level; graded structure; typicality;

    Sammanfattning : The ability to understand and communicate about the actions of others is a fundamental aspect of our daily activity. How can we talk about what others are doing? What qualities do different actions have such that they cause us to see them as being different or similar? What is the connection between what we see and the development of concepts and words or expressions for the things that we see? To what extent can two different people see and talk about the same things? Is there a common basis for our perception, and is there then a common basis for the concepts we form and the way in which the concepts become lexicalized in language? The broad purpose of this thesis is to relate aspects of perception, categorization and language to action recognition and conceptualization. LÄS MER
