Book description

Metaphor and Thought, first published in 1979, reflects the surge of interest in and research into the nature and function of metaphor in language and thought. In this revised and expanded second edition, the editor has invited the contributors to update their original essays to reflect any changes in their thinking. Reorganised to accommodate the shifts in central theoretical issues, the volume also includes six new chapters that present important and influential fresh ideas about metaphor that have appeared in such fields as the philosophy of language and the philosophy of science, linguistics, cognitive and clinical psychology, education and artificial intelligence.

Reviews

"There are books that deserve a special place for their being long-lasting and valuable contributions to the clarification of a field or a theoretical object. Metaphor and Thought has been one among them since it first appeared in 1979 and is still certainly so, now, in this enriched second edition." Cristina Cacciari, Contemporary Psychology

"...an excellent investment for anyone who would like to sample a menu rich in papers on this crucial psychological process. For those still wavering in skepticism (who cannot believe metaphor is all that crucial), this book could well make the difference." Contemporary Psychology

"Ortony and others involved in this project are to be congratulated...this volume is a persuasive demonstration that for the theories of language, communication, and cognition, an adequate account of metaphor is a necessity and no mere nicety." Canadian Journal of Philosophy
