Metaphorical Meaning and its Interpretations

http://aesthetics.ff.cuni.cz/archive/59/metaphorical-meaning

 

The author continues the preceding exchange of views on the nature of metaphor with the American philosopher Nelson Goodman that has been published in Poetics Today. He offers his own theory of metaphor, which assumes a middle ground between Goodman´s semantic theory and Davidson´s pragmatic conception. The article also presents another argument in support of the thesis that there are only true metaphors, and that the logical space assumed by Goodman for the metaphorical falsehood is already reserved for the category of statements that are nonsensical.
