In "The Literary Mind" (OUP, 1996), Mark Turner offered a bold theory about the role of story and projection in thought and in the origins of language. In this work, Turner outlines the consequences of that theory for social scientific inquiries into human meaning. He offers here a picture of how humanistic and cognitive scientific study of meaning could combine with social scientific study of meaning to create a new field, "cognitive social science". Each chapter of the book applies the theory elaborated in "The Literary Mind" to a different area or theme in social scientific research. Then, in his conclusion, Turner charts the agenda for cognitive social science.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A major frontier of the social sciences is to integrate cognitive science with social science. Mark Turner's pioneering study is an imaginative contribution which will, I believe, force social scientists to turn their attention to this frontier."-- Douglass C. North, 1993 Nobel Laureate in
Economics, Spencer T. Olin Professor in Arts and Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis
