Metaphor and Metaphilosophy: Philosophy as Combat, Play, and Aesthetic Experience

Posted By Administration, Sunday, October 20, 2019

Author: Sarah A. Mattice

 

Press: Lexington Books 

Year of publication: 2017

 

Brief introduction:

 

Sarah A. Mattice explores contemporary philosophical activity and the way in which one aspect of language—metaphor—gives shape and boundary to the landscape of the discipline. The book examines metaphors of combat, play, and aesthetic experience and emphasizes how the choices we make in philosophical language are deeply intertwined with what we think philosophy is and how it should be practiced. Drawing on a broad range of resources, from cognitive linguistics and hermeneutics to aesthetics and Chinese philosophy, Mattice's argument provides insight into the evolution and future of philosophy itself.
