The Rule of Metaphor : The Creation of Meaning in Language, Paperback Book

The Rule of Metaphor : The Creation of Meaning in Language Paperback

Part of the Routledge Classics series


Paul Ricoeur is widely regarded as one of the most distinguished philosophers of our time.

In The Rule of Metaphor he seeks 'to show how language can extend itself to its very limits, forever discovering new resonances within itself'.

Recognizing the fundamental power of language in constructing the world we perceive, it is a fruitful and insightful study of how language affects how we understand the world, and is also an indispensable work for all those seeking to retrieve some kind of meaning in uncertain times.
