The article criticizes the negative influence of modern analytic, anti-semantic and anti-phenomenological thinking on cognitive semantics, and the errors or weaknesses of analysis it induces in current Mental Space Theory (MST). It also shows how a less inhibited theory of meaning, mental spaces and blending could develop more useful analyses of empirical occurrences, such as the artifacts called 'material anchors' and works of art - Here exemplified by a painting by Matisse. © 2005 Elsevier B.V.
