Benzon, William L. and David G. Hays. 1987. Metaphor, recognition, and neural process. Pragmatics & Cognition 5 : 59–79. 21 pp.


Benzon has placed online a copy of a dated but interesting article on metaphor and neural processes from 1987. This article is an excellent illustration of the then current debate between the interaction view and the conceptual metaphor theory (Lakoff and Johnson). The discussion of neural processing revolves around Pribram's suggestion that the mind stores representations holographically, and is also somewhat out of date. (Tim Rohrer)
