Abstract

Analogies taken from the humanities are common epistemological means in teaching and explaining phenomena in sciences. This paper, however, follows a more or less opposite approach by taking formal and functional analogies from the sciences (uncertainty principle and symmetry) in order to illustrate the phenomenon of metaphor in language in an attempt to get closer to its nature, behavior and function. © 1989.
