    Description
    This arresting book will make you think, in a whole new way, about the language we use. For metaphors are not mere poetical or rheotrical embellishments, Lakoff and Johnson hold, but are a part of everyday speech that affects the ways in which we perceive, think, and act. Reality itself is defined by metaphor, and as metaphors vary from culture to culture, so do the realities they define.
