Expert Review :
How do people understand metaphorical language? How do metaphors affect the way people experience their social interactions? Do people always interpret metaphors? Does a metaphor necessarily have the same meaning for different people? Can a commonplace metaphor affect the way people think even if they don’t interpret it? Why does it matter how people interpret metaphors? David Ritchie proposes an original communication-based theory of metaphor that answers these and other questions about metaphors and metaphorical language.
The author provides a detailed critique and analysis of prior theories of metaphor, many of which are implicitly circular. He shows how the theory he proposes incorporates the principal insights of prior theories while avoiding the problem of circularity, and illustrates his points with detailed analyses of examples from previous studies of metaphor as well as new and fresh examples drawn from contemporary culture.
