      This book is an excellent review of all the key pieces to embodied cognition, including James J Gibson's ecological approach to perception and action, dynamical systems .   There is some evidence suggesting that writing system orientation may influence aspects of cognition other than writing. For example, in speakers of some European languages, like English and French, which are written from left to right (LR), the mental representation of numerical magnitude is related to the left–right axis.

    The book summarizes research that Kahneman conducted over decades, often in collaboration with Amos Tversky. It covers all three phases of his career: his early days working on cognitive biases, his work on prospect theory, and his later work on happiness. [not verified in body]The central thesis is a dichotomy between two modes of thought: "System 1" is fast, instinctive and emotional. One main reason for the observed difficulty is attributable to the visuo-spatial challenges that arise in MIS, taxing the surgeons’ cognitive skills. In this contribution, we present a new approach that combines training and assistance as well as the visual and the auditory modality to help surgeons to overcome these challenges.

    And by reinterpreting both the ecological and social strands of landscape ecology, within a common framework based on cognition, he offers a way to make the necessary connections between the social and natural ing the success of his widely popular Principles and Methods in Landscape Ecology, Farina's new book builds on well.
