Metaphors We Live By

Metaphors We Live By - George Lakoff, Mark Johnson The first half of this book was a sheer joy to read, uncovering patterns not only of language use but of thought. I was really able to personally relate to the examples given. The end of the book became continually more philosophical, uncovering some interesting insights into objectivism, subjectivism, and projecting the power of the metaphor as we came to understand it earlier in the book.
