Edited By Wojciech Wachowski, Zoltan Kövecses and Michał Borodo
In this wide-ranging book, Andrew Goatly, using lexical data from his database Metalude , investigates how conceptual metaphor themes construct our thinking and social behaviour in fields as diverse as architecture, engineering, education, genetics, ecology, economics, politics, industrial time-management, medicine, immigration, race, and sex. He argues that metaphor themes are created not only through the universal body but also through cultural experience, so that an apparently universal metaphor such as event-structure as realized in English grammar is, in fact, culturally relative, compared with e.
Moreover, event-structure as a model is both scientifically reactionary and, as the basis for technological mega-projects, has proved environmentally harmful. Furthermore, the ideologies of early capitalism created or exploited a selection of metaphor themes historically traceable through Hobbes, Hume, Smith, Malthus and Darwin. These metaphorical concepts support neo-Darwinian and neo-conservative ideologies apparent at the beginning of the 21 st century, ideologies underpinning our social and environmental crises.
As a first step to remedy the situation, we need to uncover these ideologically-loaded metaphors and look for alternative ones.
The book is a clear, well-informed, and sometimes even moving appeal for understanding the role of metaphors in the human predicament. Examination copy.
