What is the relation between language and cognition?
Here* you can find a recording of a recent debate that was held at the Cognitive Science Center Amsterdam with a panel consisting of Rens Bod, Annette de Groot, Jeannette Schaeffer, and Hedde Zeijlstra all working at the University of Amsterdam.
Interestingly, music showed up several times in the discussion as well.
