Paul Ricoeur is widely regarded as one of the most distinguished philosophers of our time. In 'The Rule of Metaphor' this intellectual giant of our age 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, Ricoeur reveals the processes by which linguistic imagination creates and recreates meaning through metaphor. Taking further his acclaimed analysis of the power of myth and symbol, Ricoeur invites us to explore the many layers of language in order to rediscover what that meaning might be. A fruitful and insightful study of how language affects how we understand the world, this book is also an indispensable work for all those seeking to retrieve some kind of meaning in uncertain times.

This study analyzes the symbiotic relationship between rhetoric and homiletics. The proposed interface between the two disciplines is metaphor. Contemporary research on metaphor in philosophy, rhetoric, sociology, and theology is employed to produce a rhetorical/metaphorical homiletics. This work attempts to return rhetoric to its traditional position as a conversation partner with homiletics. The author argues that a metaphorical, rhetorical approach to preaching is more faithful to the scriptures than the classical dependence on the canons of formal logic. The use of metaphor allows the preacher to choose the imagination over the rational paradigm as he/she creates new worlds of meaning for congregations.

This book demonstrates how, through the proper use of metaphors, anyone can become a better leader, align his or her team with their values, and lead them to success. Metaphors can activate vision and mission statements, enliven goals and objectives, and literally align every aspect of an organization in the direction it needs to go. In SPeak Performance, Jim Walz, Ph.D., shares his proprietary method of developing metaphors for use by any leader of people, whether the manager of a department or the CEO of an entire organization. Walz's Metaformation is a four-step process: 1. Metaframing: Using attributes to structure metaphors. 2. Metamining: Identifying the elements of a metaphor. (Deconstruction) 3. Metaforming: Combining these elements to build new metaphors. (Reconstruction & Innovation) 4. Metaplying: Applying these new metaphors to transform the way we lead our organizations. (Application) The knowledge gained from the principles in this book will help leaders develop stronger vision and mission statements that are action oriented. It provides a schematic to organize goals and objectives that are relevant and focused on accomplishing the leader's vision. Organizations are transformed in the way they do business and find the ability to compete in a global marketplace more effectively than ever before.

Extensive research in the fields of anthropology, archaeology, and cognitive science clearly suggests that the development of a material culture in prehistory was a serious contribution to the mathematization of the human mind. An underestimated interface in this process, as cognitive and philosophical studies suggest, was the capability to perceive the external world in a metaphorical way. This book uses several examples to tell this story. It does not claim the right to present a universal story, applicable for the whole human species, although it also questions that universality. The cornerstone of the story is structured by the relationship between body, language, and material culture. The examples presented in this book, however, also allow us to contemplate a less universal phenomenon; the similarities and differences between Near Eastern and European culture in the period of the development of farming. As such, this book also investigates whether clay tokens - an invention originated from Near Eastern societies - were also responsible for the development of mathematical abilities in prehistoric societies in Europe. In Europe, however, the lack of material representations of numbers in the form of small objects was replaced by linear concepts. Linearity, from its simple manifestations in the monumental form to its complex use in later megalithic structures, requires more thought because it served not only as an ephemeral symbol and a metaphor, but also as a practical tool in building anthropogenic spaces. Only when we see a metaphor in the omnipresent linearity can we understand it properly in combination with the cosmologic aspects of architecture, the role of the human body, and the concept of numbers. As such, the book distinguishes between two dichotomous development paths of mathematization and numerosity in Europe and the Near East - the birthplace of farming: the measuring stick metaphor and the object collection metaphor. The book also discusses further transformations of the measuring stick metaphor into more rational concepts throughout the course of technological developments in Europe.
