Philosophy and Rhetoric 22 (2):95 - 109 (1989)

Abstract
Kant says that ideas have to be linked with sense experience to be meaningful. Rational ideas can be so linked via the "symbolical process" which is a process of creating a similarity (in rules of application) between an idea and its symbol. In this process the imagination goes beyond a concept (which is already linked with sense experience) to another concept in order to say something about the latter. This turns out to be the metaphorical process. For in every metaphor there is an idea that receives expression in another, The latter already meaningful (i.E., Having a literal meaning)
