Metaphors we live by by George Lakoff( Book )

173 editions published between 1980 and 2015 in 16 languages and held by 3,312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The now-classic Metaphors We Live By changed our understanding of metaphor and its role in language and the mind. Metaphor, the authors explain, is a fundamental mechanism of mind, one that allows us to use what we know about our physical and social experience to provide understanding of countless other subjects. Because such metaphors structure our most basic understandings of our experience, they are "metaphors we live by"--Metaphors that can shape our perceptions and actions without our ever noticing them
Women, fire, and dangerous things : what categories reveal about the mind by George Lakoff( Book )

58 editions published between 1980 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,876 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Its publication should be a major event for cognitive linguistics and should pose a major challenge for cognitive science. In addition, it should have repercussions in a variety of disciplines, ranging from anthropology and psychology to epistemology and the philosophy of science. . . . Lakoff asks: What do categories of language and thought reveal about the human mind? Offering both general theory and minute details, Lakoff shows that categories reveal a great deal."--David E. Leary, "American Scientist"

18 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 1,173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Don't Think of an Elephant! is the antidote to the last forty years of conservative strategizing and the right wing's stranglehold on political dialogue in the United States. Author George Lakoff explains how conservatives think, and how to counter their arguments. he outlines in detail the traditional American values that progressives hold, but are often unable to articulate. Lakoff also breaks down the ways conservatives have framed the issues, and provides examples of how progressives can reframe the debate." From the bookjacket

Moral politics : how liberals and conservatives think by George Lakoff( Book )

21 editions published between 2001 and 2016 in English and held by 1,076 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this classic text, the first full-scale application of cognitive science to politics, George Lakoff analyzes the unconscious and rhetorical worldviews of liberals and conservatives, discovering radically different but remarkably consistent conceptions of morality on both the left and right. For this new edition, Lakoff adds a preface and an afterword extending his observations to major ideological conflicts since the book's original publication, from the impeachment of Bill Clinton to the 2000 presidential election and its aftermath." http://catdir.loc.gov/catdir/description/uchi051/2001051052.html
More than cool reason : a field guide to poetic metaphor by George Lakoff( Book )

22 editions published between 1989 and 2009 in English and held by 955 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The political mind : why you can't understand 21st-century politics with an 18th-century brain by George Lakoff( Book )

9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 940 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume attempts to harness cognitive science to rally progressive politicians and voters by contending that conservatives have framed the debate on vital issues more effectively than liberals. According to this book, conservatives comprehend that most brain functioning is grounded not in logical reasoning but in emotionalism, and as a result, huge portions of the citizenry accept the Republican framing of the war in Iraq and supporting the troops rather than liberal appeals and phrasing of the occupation in Iraq and squandering tax money. The author feels that if citizens and policy-makers better understand brain functioning, hope exists to lessen the effects of global warming and other societal disasters in the making
Whose freedom? : the battle over America's most important idea by George Lakoff( Book )

11 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 875 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An analysis of the Bush administration's uses and definitions of the concept of freedom examines how conservatives have reinterpreted beliefs about freedom to promote Republican interests for such issues as the war on terror and abortion
Moral politics : what conservatives know that liberals don't by George Lakoff( Book )

12 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 864 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on studies showing that we think in terms of metaphorical concepts, Lakoff analyzes the language of political discourse and finds it rife with metaphors. He shows how both liberals and conservatives link morality to politics through the concept of family. But they diverge in their opposing ideas of what an ideal family is. Conservative metaphors are united by the concept of a patriarchal family in which the parent's role is to develop self-discipline in the child by enforcing strict rules. By contrast, liberals view caring interaction in the family as the most effective means of creating competent and responsible children
Don't think of an elephant! : know your values and frame the debate : the essential guide for progressives by George Lakoff( )

11 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 693 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Author George Lakoff, who has become a key advisor to the Democratic Party, asserts that the Republican Party has enjoyed recent success because of the way it expertly "frames" the issues. Using carefully chosen terminology like "tax relief" and "family values," conservatives have cast themselves in a positive light and convinced many Americans to vote against their true beliefs. Now Lakoff shows how progressives can beat conservatives at their own game
Modern studies in English : readings in transformational grammar by David A Reibel( Book )

1 edition published in 1969 in English and held by 684 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of articles written over a period of 10 years concerning the transformational syntax of English has been divided into six sections. The articles in the first section provide background material for the reader with no specialized linguistic preparation. They present the fundamental questions that linguists are now asking, some of the problems faced in answering these questions, and the notational devices and conventions of transformational description. Sections 2 through 5 treat specific aspects of English structure. Articles appear concerning conjunction, pronominalization, relativization, English comparative construction, phrase structure principles of English complex sentence formation, attachment transformations, adjectives as noun phrases, and a modern theory of case. The sixth section contains articles discussing applications and implications of the transformational approach in such areas as historical change, child language, metrics, and language teaching.

Thinking points : communicating our American values and vision : a progressive's handbook by George Lakoff( Book )

6 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers a concise, and systematic explanation of how conservatives think and use language to frame political issues, and how language and moral framing equals power in politics.

The author and the Rockridge Institute offer a new understanding of the progressive worldview, and reveal the nature of the so-called political center. They explain why the most effective way to appeal to those who identify themselves as moderates or conservatives is to remain true to core progressive values

Auf leisen Sohlen ins Gehirn : politische Sprache und ihre heimliche Macht by George Lakoff( Book )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2016 in German and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Denkmodelle bewusst erfassen: Leichtfüssig, in Dialogform, kommen die Gedanken von George Lakoff und Elisabeth Wehling daher und sind doch von weit reichender, ja umwälzender Bedeutung. Als Professor für kognitive Wissenschaft verbindet Lakoff grundlegende Erkenntnisse der Gehirnforschung mit Linguistik und legt dabei die physische Bedingtheit unseres Denkens sowie die Unmöglichkeit, wertfrei zu denken und zu sprechen, dar. Das Anliegen der beiden Autoren ist es, diese wissenschaftlich erhärteten Tatsachen am Beispiel der amerikanischen sowie der europäischen medialen Berichterstattung aufzuzeigen. Im Zentrum ihrer Untersuchung steht der weltweit bekannte Satz der Bush-Administration: Seit dem 11. September 2001 führten die USA einen "Krieg gegen den Terror". Auch sechs Jahre (2007) nach dem Anschlag hängt in der US-Botschaft in Berlin ein Poster mit den Bildern von 9/11 und dem Titel: "Work of Evil." Die Mehrheit (80%) der US-amerikanischen Bürger steht hinter dem Strenger-Vater-Frame (d.h. Denkmuster), das George W. Bush verkörpert. Das konservative Denkmodell beherrscht die mediale Berichterstattung, ohne dass dieses selbst kritischen Journalisten bewusst ist. Lakoffs Vorschlag zu Handen eines "bewussten Journalismus", ist der Wechsel in das Fürsorglich-Eltern-Frame. Die Progressiven (viele Demokraten) müssten lernen, die konservativen Denkmuster (der Republikaner) sprachlich aufzubrechen. Eine Wende in der Berichterstattung würde folgende Formulierung bedeuten: "Der 'Krieg gegen den Terror' ist eine von der konservativen US-Regierung gezielt gewählte Metapher, mit der noch sieben Jahre nach den Anschlägen vom 11. September 2001 die US-amerikanische Innen- und Aussenpolitik gerechtfertigt werden soll." (S.177). Der aktuelle Wahlkampf ändert nichts an der scharfsinnigen Analyse der Bush-Politik und ihrer Folgen, könnte aber neue Ziele setzen. Paula Küng-Hefti
