Meeting Description:

The conference seeks to delve into this variety of issues by triggering a better awareness of the inter-connectedness between metaphor and the mind. The ultimate objective is to aid the acting out of these “positive metaphors”, to use the terms of “Goatly”. It is within this framework that the organizing committee welcomes individual and panel proposals related, but not limited to the following topics:

1/ Metaphor in Language and Thought
2/ Metaphor in Discourse
3/ Metaphor and the Power of Language
4/ Metaphor and Social Cognition
5/ Metaphor in Scientific Discourse
