Abstract
Riassunto: L’articolo di Caterina Villani intende mostrare come, per risolvere la “sfida dei concetti astratti”, all’ Embodied Cognition occorra concepire l’astrattezza da una prospettiva “multidimensionale”. Questo commento contiene due considerazioni. La prima riguarda il nesso logico tra la sfida dei concetti astratti e il cosiddetto “problema della generalizzazione”. La seconda discute alcune possibili tensioni dell’approccio multidimensionale stesso. Parole chiave: Concetti astratti; Concetti concreti; Embodied Cognition; Approccio multidimensionale; Generalizzazione Two Challenges for the Multidimensional Approach: Caterina Villani’s paper aims to show how, in order to solve the “challenge of abstract concepts”, the paradigm of Embodied Cognition might have to conceive of abstractness from a “multidimensional” perspective. The present commentary includes two considerations. The first addresses the logical relationship that is supposed to hold between the challenge of abstract concepts and what is called the “generalization problem”. The second concerns possible tensions involved in the multidimensional approach itself. Keywords: Abstract Concepts; Concrete Concepts; Embidied Cognition; Multidimensional Approach; Generalization
