Metaphor and World-Conceiving

(p.3) Chapter 1 Metaphor and World-Conceiving
Creating Worldviews

James W. Underhill

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter begins with a discussion of the notions of worldviews and pattering. It then sets out the focus of the book, namely the creation of worldviews: that is, with the way we create them, the way we introduce them, maintain them, and transform them. The goal is to invite readers into the kind of intellectual adventure that translators set off upon when they enter into foreign worldviews; because translators must inhabit more than one ‘world’, if they are to be able to build bridges between worlds with their translations. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.

Keywords:   worldviews, patterning, translators
