Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Metaphor and Ideology contains a table of contents, and introduction about the book. This monograph is an attempt to use the findings of contemporary cognitive linguistics to analyze an ancient text. Cognitive linguistics metaphor and blending theory, which bases its understanding of linguistic formations and interpretation in the physiology of the human body, argues that because we share basically the same physiology, and we are able to understand the majority of each other's linguistic constructions. Human physiology and cultural constructs establish lines beyond which critics may choose to go, but not with any claim to be interpreting a text as it is understood by the majority of the culture. Cognitive linguistics attempts to uncover the most common meaning, rather than the most entertaining.

Keywords: cognitive linguistics; ideology; metaphor
