4 thoughts on “Mark Johnson on Embodied Meaning and Aesthetics

  1. Johnson took a welcome turn into Dewey/pragmatism and away from Lakoff’s growing body of meme-ish/cog-behavioral nonsense but still pushing for a kind of natural law via metaphors that ignores the better research into embodiment and language use.

  2. Well, Lakkoff took an increasing interest in the political. The political has to be characterized by low density of information and low dimensional concepts if they are to serve as interfaces between widely disparate in terms of contexts and capabilities brains. I don’t see memes as being too far off the mark when it comes to how political concepts work and serve as coin between the shared members of political groups.
