The Metaphoric Origins of Objectivity, Subjectivity, and Consciousness in the Direct Perception of Reality

Stanley A. Mulaik
Philosophy of Science, June 1995, 62 (2).

This paper utilizes the theories of metaphor of George Lakoff, Mark Johnson, and Julian Jaynes to extend Jaynes' metaphor theory of consciousness by treating consciousness as an operator that works with 'covert behavior' so that humans can integrate temporally discontinuous percepts with concepts based on metaphoric extensions of the embodied schemas of direct and immediate perception and thereby transcend the limitations of direct perception.
