    Constrained Semantic Transference: A Formal Theory of Metaphors.Bipin Indurkhya - 1986 - Synthese 68 (3):515 - 551.
    In this paper we propose a formal theory of metaphors called Constrained Semantic Transference [CST]. We start from the assumptions that metaphors are characterized by the description of one domain, called the target domain, in terms of another domain, called the source domain; and that a metaphor works by transferring a set of structural relationships from the source domain to the target domain coherently.Starting from these assumptions, we formally define the concept of T-MAPs which are partial coherent mappings from the (...)

    Some Remarks on the Rationality of Induction.Bipin Indurkhya - 1990 - Synthese 85 (1):95 - 114.
    This paper begins with a rigorous critique of David Stove''s recent bookThe Rationality of Induction. In it, Stove produced four different proofs to refute Hume''s sceptical thesis about induction. I show that Stove''s attempts to vindicate induction are unsuccessful. Three of his proofs refute theses that are not the sceptical thesis about induction at all. Stove''s fourth proof, which uses the sampling principle to justify one particular inductive inference, makes crucial use of an unstated assumption regarding randomness. Once this assumption (...)

    Creativity of Metaphor in Perceptual Symbol Systems.Bipin Indurkhya - 1999 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 22 (4):621-622.
    A metaphor can often create novel features in an object or a situation. This phenomenon has been particularly hard to account for using amodal symbol systems: although highlighting and downplaying can explain the shift of focus, it cannot explain how entirely new features can come about. We suggest here that the dynamism of perceptual symbol systems, particularly the notion of simulator, provides an elegant account of the creativity of metaphor. The elegance lies in the idea that the creation of new (...)

    On the Neural Grounding for Metaphor and Projection.Bipin Indurkhya - 2005 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 28 (2):134-135.
    Focusing on the mirror system and imitation, I examine the role of metaphor and projection in evolutionary neurolinguistics. I suggest that the key to language evolution in hominid might be an ability to project one's thoughts and feelings onto another agent or object, to see and feel things from another perspective, and to be able to empathize with another agent.

    Word-Sentences and an Interaction-Based Account of Language Evolution.Bipin Indurkhya - 2003 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 26 (3):293-293.
    Considerations from an interaction-based approach to the evolution of language and the role of word-sentences therein show that the object-attribute ontology is arrived at a much later stage. Therefore, Hurford's arguments, by focusing on the predicate-argument structure, seem to miss out on most of the interesting aspects of the early stages in language evolution.
