Lakoff’s Metaphor and War

Lakoff’s Metaphor and War has been much linked and quoted in the blogoshpere. This Joho link picked-up from Solipsism Gradient (Rainer Brockenhof). Blogged a link to Lakoff’s piece earlier without comment, but found it disappointingly shallow given the subject matter – Joho calls it “close to self-parody”. I still have “Metaphors We Live By” and “Fire, Women and Dangerous Things” on my reading list however, and now find Joho’s reference to Lakoff and Johnson’s “Philosphy in the Flesh”.
