When therapists hear patients talk of feeling "imprisoned," "burning with rage," "trapped," or "unequipped," they are witnessing manifestations of the symbolic attitude, the hallmark of all depth psychology. Most clinicians naturally respond to and use metaphors, but they often fail to understand the full potential of metaphoric images. This volume, in addressing the transforming power of metaphor, demonstrates how clinicians can deepen the therapeutic encounter.

Meet the seven samurai of metaphor in this provocative follow-up toHow Customers Think. Jerry and Lindsay Zaltman explain how and why we use deep metaphors, which the authors define as any form of non-literal representation so deeply embedded in a person's thought processes that the person is unconscious of using it. Focusing on the seven metaphors - balance, connection, container, control, journey, resource, and transformation--the Zaltmans show how deep metaphors unconsciously pervade and shape our lives. If we recognise them and understand their power over us, we can use them more purposefully to improve the quality of customer relationships and market research and to challenge such pervasive business practices as market segmentation. Most important, deep metaphors can help prompt deeper thinking about key issues in business, where much thought is usually shallow, transient, and insight-free. To demonstrate the possibilities, the Zaltmans use an array of everyday stories from their research. The authors also share images collected through, or created by consumers during, their research to reveal insights better expressed through pictures than words.

A Cognitive Theory Of Metaphor

Author : Earl R. Mac Cormac

In this book, Earl Mac Cormac presents an original and unified cognitive theory of metaphor using philosophical arguments which draw upon evidence from psychological experiments and theories. He notes that implications of this theory for meaning and truth with specific attention to metaphor as a speech act, the iconic meaning of metaphor, and the development of a four-valued system of truth. Numerous examples of metaphor from poetry and science are presented and analyzed to support Mac Cormac's theory. A Cognitive Theory of Metaphortakes up three levels of explanation—metaphor as expressed in surface language, the semantics of metaphor, and metaphor as a cogitive process—and unifies these by interpreting metaphor as an evolutionary knowledge process in which metaphors mediate between minds and culture. Mac Cormac considers, and rejects, the radical theory that all use of language is metaphorical; however, this argument also recognizes that the theoryof metaphor may itself be metaphorical. The book first considers the computational metaphor often adopted by cognitive psychology as an example of metaphor requiring analysis. In contrast to three well-known philosophical theories of metaphor—the tension theory, the controversion theory, and the grammatical deviance theory—it develops a semantical anomaly theory of metaphor based on a quasi-mathematical hierarchy of words. In developing the theory, Mac Cormac makes much-needed connections between theories of metaphor and more orthodox analytic philosophy of meaning, including discussions of speech acts and the logic of fuzzy sets. This semantical theory of explanation is then shown to be compatible with contemporary psychological theories of memory.

"The Mahabharata is amongst India’s foremost spiritual texts. However, the stories of Mahabharata, are anything but spiritual. Violence, deceit, bloodshed, war, abduction, injustice, greed, lust … spills out, story after story. For thousands of years, these stories have been passed down. Generations of Indians profess to know them intimately. But do we really? What we think we know of the Mahabharata, is just the outer veil. Hidden below the veil, are keys which unlock the Mahabharata and reveal its true significance. Somewhere in time, these keys were forgotten, and then lost. All that passed on were the stories. With the discovery of the keys, this book shows how every name, every place, every episode, every boon, just everything, in the Mahabharata, is actually a metaphor! Decoded metaphors in this book, reveal the astonishing majesty and glory of the Mahabharata. Every familiar character now acquires a new signficance, and casts a new light on the underlying Vedantic philosophy - and the way of life of an enlightened people. Decoded thus, the Mahabharata is revealed to be what it truly is: a magnificent treatise on Vedanta. This is what makes Mahabharata, perhaps the greatest spiritual text, as relevant today as it was back then. And more needed today, than ever before. "
