Review Essay: Reconstructive and Other Approaches to Metaphor Analysis

  • Rudolf Schmitt University of Applied Sciences Zittau-Görlitz
Keywords: metaphor analysis, reconstructive interpretation

Abstract

KRUSE, BIESEL and SCHMIEDER present an analysis of metaphors in line with the cognitive metaphor theory of LAKOFF and JOHNSON, situating these in a "basic reconstructive procedure. The presentation of this concept is accompanied by a comparison with eight other metaphor analysis methodologies used in the social sciences. Whilst this useful comparison, with its reliance on cognitive metaphor theory, competently conveys the key concepts, it however fails to make any connection with the current state of the literature. This promising beginning highlights the need for a more comprehensive publication.
