oroboros commented on the word embodied metaphor
Cognitive science term for the proposition that metaphor underlies all human understanding and reasoning; that there is no "thing-in-itself" or "platonic ideal" existing apart from the mind and its forced-physical, pragmatic, making of sense of the world.
