Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Nine substantial essays developed from several graduate seminars in English linguistics and the sociology of language respond to St. Clair's (linguistics, U. of Louisville) realization that the research paradigms in those fields were lacking a cohesive theoretical approach to the nature of social metaphors. His analysis in based on a model of interdisciplinary linguistics that he has developed and christened Structural Epistemology, a cognitive endeavor to relate visual learning models and tonal symbolic systems with language. He has limited his discussion to some of the root or cardinal metaphors that constitute European thought. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
