Representational systems such as language, mind or brain exhibit a structure that is widely assumed to be compositional, i.e. the semantic value of complex representations is determined by the semantic values of their parts. Dating back to the late 19th century, the principle of compositionality has regained wide attention recently. Since the way the principle has been dealt with differs largely across the disciplines, the aim of the two volumes is to conjoin the diverging approaches. They assemble a collection of original papers that cover the topic of compositionality from virtually all perspectives of interest in the contemporary debate. The well chosen international list of authors includes psychologist, neuroscientist, computer scientist, linguists and philosophers.
