About the Authors
  • Written by some of the leading figures in the fields of conversation analysis, discursive psychology and ethnomethodology, this book looks at the challenging implications of discourse-based approaches to the topic of cognition. This volume shows how cognition can be reworked using analyses of engaging examples of real life interaction such as conversations between friends, relationship counselling sessions and legal hearings. It includes an extended introduction that overviews the history and context of cognitive research and its basic assumptions to provide a frame for understanding the specific examples discussed, as well as surveying cutting edge debates about discourse and cognition. This comprehensive and accessible book opens up important ways of understanding the relation between language and cognition.

    • Provides a comprehensive and accessible guide to recent developments in conversation analysis and discursive psychology
    • Illustrated throughout with engaging examples of real life interaction eg. relationship counselling talk, Oliver North's testimony
    • Contributions from an international cast of highly respected conversation analysts and discursive psychologists

    Reviews & endorsements

    'This book has the potential to do in psychology what the classic edited works in CA … have done in sociology. However, it has also initiated a serious cross-fertilization of ideas between interaction researchers in the disciplines of (primarily sociology and psychology, and will bring concerns and ideas developed in DP to new audiences.' Discourse Studies

    'Conversation and Cognition is a remarkable volume … The burgeoning field of discursive psychology may still have one or two philosophical kinks to iron out of its program, though it largely deserves the credit for bringing these issues into sharp relief. In my opinion on this particular showing, ethnomethology stands apart in its clarity on the relations between cognition and conversation.' Human Studies
