Paradigmen zu einer Metaphorologie

476 blumenberg paradigmenMetaphors have a history in a more radical sense than terms do, since the historical changes of metaphors bring to light the meta kinetics of historical horizons of meaning and perspectives, in which the terms experience their own modifications. By way of this relation of implication, the relationship between metaphorology and the history of concepts is one of subservience: metaphorology seeks to get to the substructure of thinking, to reach the underground layers, the growth medium of systematic crystallisation, but it also wants to make tangible with what 'courage' the mind in its images is one step ahead of itself, and how this courage to make assumptions creates the mind's own history.

The book Paradigmen zu einer Metaphorologie (title of the English translation: Paradigms for a Metaphorology) by Hans Blumenberg has been translated into Bulgarian (excerpt) by Nina Nikolova and published under the title Парадигми към една метафорология by KX - Critique & Humanism in Sofia.
