New publication by Jutta L. Mueller and Nikola A. Kompa


Why do we talk to ourselves? Nikola Kompa (Professor of Philosophy, University of Osnabrück) and Jutta Mueller (Professor of Psycholinguistics, University of Vienna) show how we use inner speech as a tool for thinking. Many thought processes are based on the use of language.

Kompa. N.A. & Mueller, J.L. (2022):

Inner speech as a cognitive tool – or what is the point of talking to oneself? Philosophical Psychology.
