Concepts, words and experience: how we make sense of the world

Concepts are those categories which allow us to make sense of the world. They allow us to store information in our memory and constantly learn new things. Thanks to concepts and their relationship with words we can communicate with others and share with them knowledge and experiences. Concepts are a fundamental aspect of human cognition. How do we acquire them? What is the role of language in the acquisition of concepts? How data grounded in our experience can contribute to concepts formation? The Experimental Philosophy Lab is carrying out some experiments to address these issues.
