Metaphor lies at the heart of the contemporary debate in aesthetics, semantics and the philosophy of science.

She criticizes contemporary cognitive-semantic theories of metaphor, advocated by a growing number of cognitive scientists, for placing only secondary emphasis on the poetic character of metaphor.
