The cognitive sciences have developed and there have been significant changes to fields such as linguistics, neuropsychology, the humanities, biology and artificial intelligence.
Folk culture is, to a great extent, related to the changes in cognitive sciences; this is known as the ‘formal theory of cognition’, which includes linguistic and folk knowledge because it is believed that the components of folk culture - customs, traditions and folkloric images - are related to humans’ biological systems.
Human biology is designed to adapt to the elements in a certain cultural environment. This helps to create cultural-environmental harmony.
Here, we address the requirements of folk culture and its relationship to ontological connotations within the framework of cognitive structure. We also address the cognitive-biological relationship by looking at mental and psychological factors and the principle of adaptation.
Lastly, we address the relationship between the cultural and linguistic norm and cognitive norms.
