Book Information

   

Title: Metaphor in Focus
Subtitle: Philosophical Perspectives on Metaphor Use
URL: http://www.c-s-p.org/Flyers/Metaphor-in-Focus--Philosophical-Perspectives-on-Metaphor-Use1-4438-4468-3.htm
Description:

This book is a philosophical guide on metaphor use. Previous research concerning metaphors has focused on either the theoretical-linguistic problems or the uses in specific research fields. Although these domains share some common interests, there has been little cross-communication. The aim of this volume is to bridge the gap between the theoretical and the empirical side of the research on metaphor use, by analysing the role of metaphor over different domains of use. Therefore, while adopting a theoretical-philosophical point of view, the volume also presents the interdisciplinary connections between philosophy and other academic areas such as linguistics, cognitive science, discourse analysis, communication studies, didactics, economics, arts and political science.
