In this book, the author provides a critique of the cognitivist philosophy which underpins information-processing models of human speech perception, and a proposal of an alternative approach to speech perception research which focuses on the nature of the perceiver, rather than of the acoustic signal. The first part consists of a review of speech perception research in the information-processing paradigm; an overview of the cognitivist philosophy from which this approach takes its justification; and an introduction to some relevant themes of phenomenological philosophy. The second half uses the phenomenological insights discussed to demonstrate some inadequacies of cognitivism, shows how these inadequacies underlie problems with the information-processing theory, and suggest an alternative framework with significant change of focus.
