“We should pay more careful attention to the imagery we use to talk about our inner lives, and be less tolerant of metaphors that cast the self as a broken machine, an entrepreneurial entity, or a lone fighter in enemy territory.”
– Anna Katharina Schaffner
Writer, coach, and professor Anna Katharina Schaffner delves into mind-metaphors, the metaphors we conjure to describe our inner lives. Schaffner pushes us to think of ourselves not as machines but as works of art, and to find self-metaphors that imagine the self as relational, interdependent and pro-social.
