The Oxford Handbook of Philosophy of Perception is a survey by leading philosophical thinkers of contemporary issues and new thinking in philosophy of perception. It includes sections on the history of the subject, introductions to contemporary issues in the epistemology, ontology and aesthetics of perception, treatments of the individual sense modalities and of the things we perceive by means of them, and a consideration of how perceptual information is integrated and consolidated. New analytic tools and applications to other areas of philosophy are discussed in depth. Each of the forty-five entries is written by a leading expert, some collaborating with younger figures; each seeks to introduce the reader to a broad range of issues. All contain new ideas on the topics covered; together they demonstrate the vigour and innovative zeal of a young field. The book is accessible to anybody who has an intellectual interest in issues concerning perception.

The Oxford Handbook of Computer Music offers a state-of-the-art cross-section of the most field-defining topics and debates in computer music today. A unique contribution to the field, it situates computer music in the broad context of its creation and performance across the range of issues - from music cognition to pedagogy to sociocultural topics - that shape contemporary discourse in the field. Fifty years after musical tones were produced on a computer for the first time, developments in laptop computing have brought computer music within reach of all listeners and composers. Production and distribution of computer music have grown tremendously as a result, and the time is right for this survey of computer music in its cultural contexts. An impressive and international array of music creators and academics discuss computer music's history, present, and future with a wide perspective, including composition, improvisation, interactive performance, spatialization, sound synthesis, sonification, and modeling. Throughout, they merge practice with theory to offer a fascinating look into computer music's possibilities and enduring appeal.

The Oxford Handbook of Cognitive Linguistics presents a comprehensive overview of the main theoretical concepts and descriptive/theoretical models of Cognitive Linguistics, and covers its various subfields, theoretical as well as applied. The first twenty chapters give readers the opportunity to acquire a thorough knowledge of the fundamental analytic concepts and descriptive models of Cognitive Linguistics and their background. The book starts with a set of chapters discussing different conceptual phenomena that are recognized as key concepts in Cognitive Linguistics: prototypicality, metaphor, metonymy, embodiment, perspectivization, mental spaces, etc. A second set of chapters deals with Cognitive Grammar, Construction Grammar, and Word Grammar, which, each in their own way, bring together the basic concepts into a particular theory of grammar and a specific model for the description of grammatical phenomena. Special attention is given to the interrelation between Cognitive and Construction Grammar. A third set of chapters compares Cognitive Linguistics with other forms of linguistic research (functional linguistics, autonomous linguistics, and the history of linguistics), thus giving a readers a better grip on the position of Cognitive Linguistics within the landscape of linguistics at large. The remaining chapters apply these basic notions to various more specific linguistic domains, illustrating how Cognitive Linguistics deals with the traditional linguistic subdomains (phonology, morphology, lexicon, syntax, text and discourse), and demonstrating how it handles linguistic variation and change. Finally they consider its importance in the domain of Applied Linguistics, and look at interdisciplinary links with research fields such as philosophy and psychology. With a well-known cast of contributors from around the world, this reference work will be of interest to researchers and advanced students in (cognitive) linguistics, psychology, cognitive science, and anthropology.

During the last three decades there have been enormous advances in our understanding of the neural mechanisms of selective attention at the network as well as the cellular level. The Oxford Handbook of Attention brings together the different research areas that constitute contemporary attention research into one comprehensive and authoritative volume. In 40 chapters, it covers the most important aspects of attention research from the areas of cognitive psychology, neuropsychology, human and animal neuroscience, and computational modelling. The book is divided into six main sections. Following an introduction from Michael Posner, The Oxford Handbook of Attention begins by looking at theoretical models of attention. The next two sections are dedicated to spatial attention and non-spatial attention respectively. Within section 4, the authors consider the interactions between attention and other psychological domains. The last two sections focus on attention related disorders and on computational models of attention. A final epilogue chapter written by Nobre and Kastner summarizes the questions, methods, findings, and emerging principles of contemporary attention research. For both scholars and students, The Oxford Handbook of Attention provides a concise and state-of-the-art review of the current literature in this field.

SYNAESTHESIA: THEORETICAL, ARTISTIC AND SCIENTIFIC FOUNDATIONS FOREWORD TO THE ENGLISH EDITION This edition in English language appears two years after the first edition of Sinestesia. Los fundamentos teóricos, artísticos y científicos (2012) that was in Spanish. This volume compiles contributions regarding the study of synaesthesia in a wide and multidisciplinary sense, from science to arts, its target audience being synaesthesia researchers, university students and PhD students. We already intended, with the release of the first edition, to provide a partially bilingual Spanish/English edition, since around half of the contributions were originally written in English, so that it could embrace all the contributions in the original language of the authors. Due to the high number of pages the volume finally would have had, the idea of a double edition appeared. Compared with the first edition in Spanish, a chapter about the relationship between music and synaesthesia (López-Montes) has been integrated. This absence was already mentioned in our first preface. During the time between the two editions, a great volume about synaesthesias has been published, The Oxford Handbook of Synesthesia, edited by Ed Hubbard and Julia Simner. Indeed, both volumes have something in common; for example, the interdisciplinary approach, and some of the authors (Brang, Day, Hubbard, Jewansky, Marks, Ramachandran, Ward). Nevertheless, both volumes have a different purpose. Our precise intention is to provide documentations about the beginning and spreading of the contemporary debate on the subject of synaesthesia and its position between the two edges: science and art, which, from our perspective, was due to the clever intuition discerned in the opening of the I international and multidisciplinary conference on Synaesthesia: Science and Arts, held in Cuevas de Almanzora, in Spain, in 2005. We firmly believed the first international experience certainly contributed to the dissemination and enrichment of the discussion, publications and interest that currently exists about synaesthesia. The purpose of this volume is to demonstrate this development with the actors that participated in this process. We have pleasure in presenting this new edition also because next year, during the V Conference of Synaesthesia: Science and Art – organized by ArtecittàFoundation with the collaboration of Politecnico di Milano, the University of Jaén, the Cultural Department of Alcalá La Real Council and the American Synesthesia Association (ASA) – that will be held in Alcalá La Real (Jaén, Spain, 16 – 19 May 2015), we will celebrate our tenth anniversary, a very special occasion for us: that is why we would like to offer to all attendees a memento of our work. Among the different chapters we have combined the usage of the term synaesthesia (“European English”) and synesthesia (American English) – always respecting the terms used by the authors. Since the edition is published in Europe, the “European” English spelling has been prioritised in the title and in the text in general. To conclude, we would like to show our especial gratitude to all of the authors who have enthusiastically collaborated on the Project of this new edition, to our translators – especially to Julia, our “official” translator – and to Artecittà Foundation that have made possible this new edition.

This volume is about the many ways we perceive. In nineteen new essays, philosophers and cognitive scientists explore the nature of the individual senses, how and what they tell us about the world, and how they interrelate. They consider how the senses extract perceptual content from receptoral information and what kinds of objects we perceive and whether multiple senses ever perceive a single event. Questions pertaining to how many senses we have, what makes one sense distinct from another, and whether and why distinguishing senses may be useful feature prominently. Contributors examine the extent to which the senses act in concert, rather than as discrete modalities, and whether this influence is epistemically pernicious, neutral, or beneficial. Many of the essays engage with the idea that it is unduly restrictive to think of perception as a collation of contents provided by individual sense modalities. Rather, contributors contend that to understand perception properly we need to build into our accounts the idea that the senses work together. In doing so, they aim to develop better paradigms for understanding the senses and thereby to move toward a better understanding of perception.
