Dr Great Art! Short, Fun Art History Artecdotes!


Short, hopefully fun, art history, art and visual metaphor podcasts.

Nov 19, 2017

My Artecdote this episode is the an explanation of my assertion that "Artists Create New Metaphors to Live By." Under the inspiration of Lakoff, Johnson and Turner's Cognitive Metaphor Theory, I describe my assertion that artists create for themselves new metaphors to live by, by creating new metaphors to create with, which viewers can then also use to think with and live by. This I refer to as artists’ metaphor(m)s or central tropes.

Once again an excellent podcast. This takes one aspect of your metaphor(m) theory a step farther.
