This book provides a detailed criticism of experientialist semantics, stressing both philosophical topics linked with experientialism and cognitive perspectives on metaphor and metonymy. The close readings of key passages from Lakoff's and Johnson's work, offer the opportunity to specify more precisely theory-internal inconsistencies.
