Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Cambridge Handbook of Metaphor and Thought offers the most comprehensive collection of essays in multidisciplinary metaphor scholarship that has ever been published. These essays explore the significance of metaphor in language, thought, culture, and artistic expression. There are five main themes of the book: the roots of metaphor, metaphor understanding, metaphor in language and culture, metaphor in reasoning and feeling, and metaphor in nonverbal expression. Contributors come from a variety of academic disciplines, including psychology, linguistics, philosophy, cognitive science, literature, education, music, and law.

Book News Annotation:

The nature of this study is necessarily multi-disciplinary, encompassing language, thought, culture, and artistic expression. Therefore this comprehensive collection of 28 essays includes studies of the roots of metaphor, metaphor understanding, metaphor in language and culture, metaphor in reasoning and feeling, and metaphor in nonverbal expression. Contributors, who come from a variety of academic disciplines including psychology, linguistics, philosophy, cognitive science, and the law, address such specific topics as the neural theory of metaphor, how metaphors create categories, metaphor as a method of mapping structure, metaphor comprehension and the brain, metaphor in literature, metaphor in the body and culture, corpus linguistics and metaphor, metaphor and artificial intelligence, conceptual metaphor and the nature of mathematics, metaphor and emotion, metaphor and psychoanalysis, metaphor and art, metaphor in gesture and plot, and the role of metaphor in music. The result is a valuable reference as well as an excellent classroom reader. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
