The metaphor as instrument for naming the terminal states of ecological invariants

Bierschenk, Bernhard LU (1991) In Kognitionsvetenskaplig forskning / Cognitive Science Research 37.
Abstract
Implicit figuration and subjective interpretation make up the conventional basis of the classical discussion of the omprehensiveness and aesthetic quality of the metaphor.Its function and use in Social Science is illustrated as a background to a radical different methodological approach. By means of Perspective Text Analysis it is

demonstrated that the metaphor has to be conceived as the Re-naming Instrument. The hypothesis tested is that the metaphor carries ecological information. The results of the analysis show that the metaphor has to be treated as a self-contained verbal expression of affordance. By narning the affordance, i. e. what object and events in the environment offer, events of a certain kind are brought into... (More)
