Heavy but insightful review of our use of metaphors,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Metaphors We Live By (Paperback)
In this book the authors show how metaphors are much more than we at first suppose. They are not just aids to language; they are fundamental concepts that underpin much of our thinking. There are some powerful ideas and good examples in the book but its style is very heavy, arcane and academic. It is tough work getting through the book and the key ideas could be expressed much more concisely.
