This chapter focuses on the conceptual system to describe the grounded approach. The grounded approach states that cognition relies on different components of the overall environment, which determine and influence human actions. The conceptual system is composed of organized knowledge regarding different aspects of the world. The chapter addresses different theoretical issues that are related to grounding concepts of cognition. It also addresses a number of assumptions that are derived from this perspective and reviews available evidence for these assumptions, along with grounding assessment methods. The chapter furthermore finds that the conceptual system provides organized knowledge, which assists every type of cognitive activity.

Keywords:   conceptual system, grounded approach, human action, theoretical issues, cognition
