Metaphor and the Problem of Epistemological Relativism: A Response to Tony Stigliano's Comments


by C. A. Bowers — 1981

The author responds to Stigliano’s criticisms. Stigliano addresses several substantive issues. The substantive issues relate to the epistemological implications of metaphorical thinking, and to the question of whether social criticism and reform can be reconciled with a theory of culture that recognizes the existence of “multiple realities.” The author first deals with a series of misrepresentations that he believes distort his analysis of metaphorical thinking.
