Metaphors We Live By George Lakoff, Mark Johnson
Publisher: University Of Chicago Press

What are the metaphors we live by? Let's take a look at a few of them. Probably to many of you, it now seems like waiting for the end of the world.

Readers of Lakoff and Johnson's Metaphors we live by will recognize here a familiar conceit: argument is war. Well, rather compare it to the beginning of a new revolution. I love both the elegance and efficiency of analogous thinking; for me, it's one of the most sublime things about our language. Is life a journey, a game, a dream, or a movie we are watching? I've always said that I'm a sucker for a good metaphor.
