Metaphor: How We Understand the World

You use metaphor in every conversation. It's how you understand much of the world around you.

Kevin Gibby will discuss the concept of metaphor and how it is not merely a linguistic device used only by poets. We think and communicate in metaphor all the time. Emotions, love, time, computers, and career progression are just some examples of areas we use metaphor to reason and communicate about. Learning about metaphor as a concept will help you communicate and reason about your life more effectively.
