Abstract


Recently in the west, the relationship between space, time, and number have become a hot topic in cognitive science, which rouse a lot interests. In this paper, we mainly review the relationship between them, including time and space studies, time and number studies, number and space studies, and the relationship between space, time, and number in the past researches in the west. Finally, taking the west literature review as reference, I propose my view of the relationship between them in the YiChing. “Space, time and number study” is a hot issue in recent growing literature. For the current cognitive linguistics research trend, there are two new turns. One is about the quantitative turn in methodology, the other one is about the social turn in theory. It is no exception for time and space study, about my topic I will focus on interdisciplinary approaches (Cognitive semiotics, Cultural semiotics and Cognitive cultural linguistics, historical linguistics, cognitive social linguistics etc) to probe into temporal, spatial and numeral concept and representation in ancient China.
