Contenido: Psyche’s muse: the role of metaphor in the history of psychology. From metaphors to models: the use of analogy in neuropsychology. Inner feelings, works of the flesh, the beast within diseases of the mind, driving force, and putting on a show: six metaphors of emotion and their theoretical extensions. Motives and metaphors: a study in scientific creativity. Cognitive metaphors in experimental psychology. Metaphors of consciousness and cognition in the history. Metaphors of knowledge and behavior in the behaviorist tradition. Metaphor, metatheory, and the social world. Metaphors of unwanted conduct: a historical sketch. Generative metaphor and the history of psychological discourse. Metaphor, theory, and practice in the history of psychology.
Resumen: Metaphors in the History of Psychology describes and analyzes the ways in which psychological accounts of brain functioning, consciousness, cognition, emotion, motivation, learning, and behavior have been shaped--and are still being shaped--by the central metaphors used by contemporary psychologists and their predecessors. The contributors to this volume argue that psychologists and their predecessors have invariably turned to metaphor in order to articulate their descriptions, theories, and practical interventions with regard to psychological functioning. By specifying the major metaphors in the history of psychology, these contributors have offered a new "key" to understanding this critically important area of human knowledge. This theme has become an issue of central concern in a variety of disciplines ranging from linguistics and literary studies to cognitive science, psychology, and philosophy. Through the identification of these metaphors, the contributors to this volume have provided a remarkably useful guide to the history, current orientations, and future prospects of modern psychology.
