• Arnold Berleant deposited The Wilderness City: An Essay in Metaphorical Experience on Humanities Commons 4 years, 6 months ago

    This inquiry into the aesthetic of the city has two objectives. One is to explore the dimension of urban life suggested by the metaphor, “wilderness,” hoping to discover what distinctive vision of urban life the “wilderness city” can provide. The other is to use this investigation to uncover something about the meaning and function of metaphor–more exactly, of metaphorical experience.
