Abstract

Summary An elaboration and defense of the “interaction view of metaphor” introduced in the author's earlier study, “Metaphor” (1962). Special attention is paid to the explication of the metaphors used in the earlier account. The topics discussed include: selection of the “targets” of the theory; classification of metaphors; how metaphorical statements work; relations between metaphors and similes; metaphorical thought; criteria of recognition; the “creative” aspects of metaphors; the ontological status of metaphors. Metaphors are found to be more closely connected with background models than has previously been recognized.
