Knowledge of number and knowledge of language: Number as a test case for the role of language in cognition

Philosophical Psychology 21 (4):437 – 441 (2008)
Abstract
The relationship between language and conceptual thought is an unresolved problem in both philosophy and psychology. It remains unclear whether linguistic structure plays a role in our cognitive processes. This special issue brings together cognitive scientists and philosophers to focus on the role of language in numerical cognition: because of their universality and variability across languages, number words can serve as a fruitful test case to investigate claims of linguistic relativism.
