    Tropical Truth(S): The Epistemology of Metaphor and Other Tropes.Armin Burkhardt & Brigitte Nerlich (eds.) - 2010 - De Gruyter.
    Tropes are not only rhetorical means, which are used as a creative and / or persuasive linguistic means in poetry and public speech. They are also a cognitive tool which helps people to understand the world and to express their world. As they are the basis on which our worldview and even our everyday speech is founded, the question must be posed as to whether utterances containing tropes can be said to be true. This has been an epistemological problem since (...)

    War on Foot and Mouth Disease in the UK, 2001: Towards a Cultural Understanding of Agriculture. [REVIEW]Brigitte Nerlich - 2004 - Agriculture and Human Values 21 (1):15-25.
    This article applies some ofthe insights from framing studies in policyresearch, metaphor analysis, and the history ofmedicine to a cultural understanding ofagriculture, using the 2001 outbreak of footand mouth disease in the UK as a case study.The article will show how metaphors of war wereused as a “rhetorical frame” by the media andas an implicit “action frame” by policy makers.It will be argued that although the war framemight initially have been useful in rallyingsupport for the slaughter policy, the metaphorlater backfired, (...)

    Mind, Meaning and Metaphor: The Philosophy and Psychology of Metaphor in 19th-Century Germany.Brigitte Nerlich & David D. Clarke - 2001 - History of the Human Sciences 14 (2):39-61.
    This article explores a German philosophy of metaphor, which proposed a close link between the body and the mind as the basis for metaphor, debunked the view that metaphor is just a decorative rhetorical device and questioned the distinction between the literal and the figurative. This philosophy of metaphor developed at the intersection between a reflection on language and thought and a reflection on the nature of beauty in aesthetics. Thinkers such as Giambattista Vico, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Jean Paul (...)

  6. 'Climategate': Paradoxical Metaphors and Political Paralysis.Brigitte Nerlich - 2010 - Environmental Values 19 (4):419-442.
    Climate scepticism in the sense of climate denialism or contrarianism is not a new phenomenon, but it has recently been very much in the media spotlight. When, in November 2009, emails by climate scientists were published on the internet without their authors' consent, a debate began in which climate sceptic bloggers used an extended network of metaphors to contest science. This article follows the so-called 'climategate' debate on the web and shows how a paradoxical mixture of religious metaphors and demands (...)

  7. Science and the Politics of Openness : Here Be Monsters.Sarah Hartley, Sujatha Raman, Alexander Smith & Brigitte Nerlich (eds.) - 2018 - Manchester University Press.
    The phrase 'here be monsters' or 'here be dragons' is commonly believed to have been used on ancient maps to indicate unexplored territories which might hide unknown beasts. This book maps and explores places between science and politics that have been left unexplored, sometimes hiding in plain sight - in an era when increased emphasis was put on 'openness'. The book is rooted in a programme of research funded by the Leverhulme Trust entitled: 'Making Science Public: Challenges and opportunities, which (...)

    Fracking on YouTube: Exploring Risks, Benefits and Human Values.Rusi Jaspal, Andrew Turner & Brigitte Nerlich - 2014 - Environmental Values 23 (5):501-527.
    Fracking or the extraction of shale gas through hydraulic fracturing of rock has become a contested topic, especially in the United States, where it has been deployed on a large scale, and in Europe where it is still largely speculative. Research is beginning to investigate the environmental and economic costs and benefits as well as public perceptions of this new energy technology. However, so far the social and psychological impact of fracking on those involved in it, such as gas workers, (...)

    Are Rules and Entries Enough? Historical Reflections on a Longstanding Controversy.Brigitte Nerlich & David D. Clarke - 1999 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 22 (6):1032-1033.
    For language to function we clearly need two formal ordering principles: lexical entries and rules. Clahsen's target article provides multiple empirical evidence for this distinction, but this may be simply to overconfirm the undeniable and to overlook the hidden motor of language use and language development, namely, function. Since at least 1859, linguists have argued for the primacy of function, and these arguments are worth rediscovering today.

  11. Biosecurity and Insecurity: The Interaction Between Policy and Ritual During the Foot and Mouth Crisis.Brigitte Nerlich & Nick Wright - 2006 - Environmental Values 15 (4):441-462.
    In 2001 a highly infectious animal disease, foot and mouth disease, broke out in the UK and spread rapidly. In May, when the spread seemed to be slowing down, new disease hotspots appeared in previously little affected regions, such as North Yorkshire. New biosecurity rules were imposed. Based on a series of semi-structured interviews with stakeholders, this article shows that the biosecurity measures farmers implemented during the epidemic meant more than just reducing the risk of spreading FMD. For many, cleansing (...)

  13. Cómo hacer cosas con palabras polisémicas: El uso de la ambigüedad en el lenguaje ordinario.Brigitte Nerlich & Pedro J. Chamizo Domínguez - 2016 - Contrastes: Revista Internacional de Filosofía 4.
    RESUMENSe asume normalmente que, en las conversaciones ordinarias, los hablantes evitan los significados múltiplesy que los oyentes desambiguan automáticamente las proferencias en función del contexto. En contraste, nosotros queremos hacer ver que la gente explota activamente la polisemia en la conversación a fin de establecer y consolidar los lazos sociales entre los hablantes. y esto también consolida a la larga, el sistema compartido de significados. nuestra investigación sobre el uso pragmático de la polisemia constrasta con la investigación tradicional sobre la (...)

    How to Do Things with Epigenetics: An Investigation Into the Use of Metaphors to Promote Alternative Approaches to Health and Social Science, and Their Implications for Interdisciplinary Collaboration.Brigitte Nerlich, Aleksandra Stelmach & Catherine Ennis - 2020 - Social Science Information 59 (1):59-92.
    Epigenetics is a multifaceted field within genetics and genomics which focuses on discovering mechanisms involved in gene expression and regulation. It came to public attention around the turn of the millennium when the human genome began to be deciphered. Initial findings from epigenetics research held the promise of changing how we think about health and illness, evolution and heredity; speculations about how individuals and populations could begin to control such processes through epigenetics were then picked up in the public realm.

  15. Language, Action and Context: The Early History of Pragmatics in Europe and America 1780–1930.Brigitte Nerlich & David D. Clarke - 1996 - John Benjamins Publishing.
    The roots of pragmatics reach back to Antiquity, especially to rhetoric as one of the three liberal arts. However, until the end of the 18th century proto-pragmatic insights tended to be consigned to the pragmatic, that is rhetoric, wastepaper basket and thus excluded from serious philosophical consideration. It can be said that pragmatics was conceived between 1780 and 1830 in Britain, but also in Germany and in France in post-Lockian and post-Kantian philosophies of language. These early ‘conceptions’ of pragmatics are (...)

    Media, Metaphors and Modelling: How the UK Newspapers Reported the Epidemiological Modelling Controversy During the 2001 Foot and Mouth Outbreak.Brigitte Nerlich - 2007 - Science, Technology, and Human Values 32 (4):432-457.
    The relation between theoretical models and metaphors has been studied since at least the 1950s. The relation between metaphors and mathematical modelling is less well researched. This article takes the media coverage of the foot and mouth modelling exercise in 2001 as an occasion to examine the metaphors of mathematical modelling that were proposed by the UK press during that time to make sense of this new scientific policy tool. One can detect a gradual change in metaphor use by the (...)

  19. Semantic Theories in Europe, 1830-1930: From Etymology to Contextuality.Brigitte Nerlich - 1992 - John Benjamins.
    It is widely believed by historians of linguistics that the 19th-century was largely devoted to historical and comparative studies, with the main emphasis on the discovery of soundlaws. Syntax is typically portrayed as a mere sideline of these studies, while semantics is seldom even mentioned. If it comes into view at all, it is usually assumed to have been confined to diachronic lexical semantics and the construction of some (mostly ill-conceived) typologies of semantic change. This book aims to destroy some (...)
