An abstract domain - metaphorically conceptualized in terms of more concrete domains - is examined in Olaf Jäkel's paper entitled "Metaphorical scenarios of science". Within a cognitive theory of metaphor, Jäkel seeks to investigate metaphors as observed in a highly abstract domain such as the discourse of science. Jäkel is mainly interested in the whole conceptual domain of science as it is organized by a scenario which consists of several elements such as nature, a scientist, methods, theories, and scientific progress. Jäkel assumes that this generalized science-scenario "includes all the ingredients necessary for a fully-fledged conceptualization of science." (Martin Pütz)
