Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0198521804, Hardcover)

Does abstract reasoning depend on language, or can thought exist without language? This volume addresses this crucial question in a new way, bringing together experts on non-verbal thinking in adults, pre-linguistic infants, and animals. Topics covered include the role of the 'non-verbal' right-cerebral hemisphere in humans; the investigation of non-verbal aspects of various categories of cognition (such as abstract reasoning, spatial awareness, and pattern recognitions); evidence for cognition without conscious awareness; and neurological and developmental evidence. The concluding chapter is a personal account by a gifted, dyslexic mathematician of the nature of his handicap and the non-verbal reasoning that he has developed to cope with his disability. Psychologists, neuroscientists and neurologists will find these insights fascinating.
