The meeting will be organized by Robin Allott and held under the joint auspices of the Language Origins Society and the European Society for the Study of Cognitive Systems. The meeting will focus on the neural approach to language embodiment and aim to bring together those whose work in linguistics, in neuroscience or in philosophy (Merleau-Ponty's account of word embodiment) directly or indirectly bears on this. As background for this approach reference is made to Neurophilosophy by Patricia Churchland and to evolutionary neurophysiological aspects considered at the multidisciplinary conference organised by the Language Origins Society (with others) as part of a NATO/ASI series.
