Truth and Metaphor

Truth and Metaphor

(p.182) 6 Truth and Metaphor
Between Chora and the Good

Charles P. Bigger

Fordham University Press

This chapter examines the concept of truth and metaphor in relation to the philosophy of Plato. It explains that the metaphor's phenomenological task and movement from predication toward an apprehensive of “the thing itself” was started by Plato in the Seventh Epistle. However, this deictic movement was nipped in the bud by the publication of Aristotle's De Categoria, where things and their indicators disappear to leave their linguistic traces.

Keywords:   Plato, truth, metaphor, deictic movement, Seventh Epistle, Aristotle, De Categoria
