Summary/Abstract: What is linguistic cognition and how does it relate to metaphysics? All the threads of this book revolve around this question. One of these themes is crucial: the rational soul and its cognitive powers. Another but no less important theme is the diagnosis of what linguists call (the sense of) communication. In this understanding, communication is viewed predominantly in relation to abstract concepts.
