Summary

Metaphors are not simply linguistic flourishes that we use to artfully describe the world around us. They are conceptual tools that help us interpret and even construct the meanings of our experiences and interactions.

Notes

We use metaphors to interpret and understand the world around us

Experientialism suggests we understand the world through our interactions with it
