The contributions in this volume combine fundamental
questions of common sense geography with case studies of
ancient geographical texts. The book seeks to bridge
synchronic cognitive linguistic and cognitive psychological
approaches to ancient texts with a diachronic perspective. The mental modelling of common sense geography is
a fruitful theoretical approach to gain deeper insights in
universal and cultural-specific mnemonic representational
systems on the one hand, and to enhance our understanding of
ancient geography on the other.

Klaus Geus is a historian, philologist and
who holds the chair for ancient geography at the Freie
Universität Berlin.

Martin Thiering, a cognitive linguist and anthropologist,
works on the interface between cognitive linguistics,
cognitive anthropology, and philosophy of language.
