the language of space

There’s a fascinating article in today’s New York Times Magazine on connections between language and space, geographic and otherwise. If you like these ideas, also check out the works of Stephen Pinker. I’ve been reading his The Stuff of Thought this summer and makes references to these ideas throughout.

Reading this reminds me of how much I enjoy cognitive studies, from an armchair perspective. Understanding how we think and learn is fascinating stuff.
