Lakoff, George : University of California
George Lakoff is professor of linguistics at the University of California at Berkeley, and the coauthor, with Mark Johnson, of Metaphors We Live By. He was one of the founders of the generative semantics movements in linguistics in the 1960s, a founder of the field of cognitive linguistics in the 1970s, and one of the developers of the neural theory of language in the 1980s and '90s. His other books include More Than Cool Reason (with Mark Turner), Women, Fire, and Dangerous Things, and Moral Politics. Mark Johnson is professor and head of the Philosophy Department at the University of Oregon and is on the executive committee of the Institute of Cognitive and Decision Sciences there. In addition to his books with George Lakoff, he is the editor of an anthology, Philosophical Perspectives on Metaphor.
"Was Aristotle blind to his own metaphors? How does Descartes' philosophical theory of knowledge relate to our common folk theory of vision? Would an empirically responsible philosophy require us to abandon our deepest philosophical assumptions? Are some of our greatest thinkers guilty of having overlooked brain and body?"Lakoff and Johnson's new book is a bold and subversive incursion of cognitive science and metaphor theory into the trenches of philosophy, with fascinating consequences for scientific and intellectual inquiry in general. It will no doubt give rise to lively debate (and perhaps to some additional rich and novel metaphors for thinking about thought!)"
--Gilles Fauconnier, University of California at San Diego
"Lakoff and Johnson's slim Metaphors We Live By had extraordinary influence in emphasizing the role of the body in thought, language, and knowledge, a subject now at the center of neuroscience, cognitive science, linguistics, and philosophy. Twenty years after, reunited, Lakoff and Johnson take up where they left off. The result is a herculean volume whose bracing ambition is to explain the nature of human knowledge and the bases of philosophical inquiry. This book will be an instant academic bestseller."
--Mark Turner, The Literary Mind: The Origins of Thought and Language
"Their ambition is massive, their argument important....The authors engage in a sort of metaphorical genome project, attempting to delineate the genetic code of human thought."
--The New York Times Book Review
