Abstract:

Editor’s Note: This is a new edition of a previously announced book.

In Where Metaphors Come From, Zoltán Kövecses proposes a metaphorical
grounding that augments and refines conceptual metaphor theory according to
which conceptual metaphors are based on our bodily experience. While this is
certainly true in many cases of metaphor, the role of the body in metaphor
creation can and should be reinterpreted, and, consequently, the body can be
seen as just one of the several contexts from which metaphors can emerge
(including the situational, discourse, and conceptual-cognitive contexts) -
although perhaps the dominant or crucial one.

Kövecses is a leader in CMT, and his argument in this book is more in line
with what has been discovered about the nature of human cognition in recent
years; namely, that human cognition is grounded in experience in multiple ways
- embodiment, in a strict sense, being just one of them (see Barsalou, 2008;
Gibbs, 2006; Pecher and Zwaan, 2005). In light of the present work, this is
because cognition, including metaphorical cognition, is grounded in not only
the body, but also in the situations in which people act and lead their lives,
the discourses in which they are engaged at any time in communicating and
interacting with each other, and the conceptual knowledge they have
accumulated about the world in the course of their experience of it.
