The History of Metaphors of Nature: Science and Literature from Homer to Al Gore, Volumen2

Edwin Mellen Press, 2006 - 925 páginas
This book shows how modern European Languages have a large number of metaphors which represent the whole of nature. Metaphors used in natural science and literature, such as Mother Nature, have a powerful influence on the framing of scientific hypothesis making, and these words have guided the history of natural science for several millennia, while also influencing North American nature writing.
