Metaphors we live by by George Lakoff( Book )

173 editions published between 1980 and 2014 in 14 languages and held by 3,241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The now-classic Metaphors We Live By changed our understanding of metaphor and its role in language and the mind. Metaphor, the authors explain, is a fundamental mechanism of mind, one that allows us to use what we know about our physical and social experience to provide understanding of countless other subjects. Because such metaphors structure our most basic understandings of our experience, they are "metaphors we live by"--Metaphors that can shape our perceptions and actions without our ever noticing them
Women, fire, and dangerous things : what categories reveal about the mind by George Lakoff( Book )

58 editions published between 1980 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,865 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Its publication should be a major event for cognitive linguistics and should pose a major challenge for cognitive science. In addition, it should have repercussions in a variety of disciplines, ranging from anthropology and psychology to epistemology and the philosophy of science. . . . Lakoff asks: What do categories of language and thought reveal about the human mind? Offering both general theory and minute details, Lakoff shows that categories reveal a great deal."--David E. Leary, "American Scientist"
Moral politics : how liberals and conservatives think by George Lakoff( Book )

31 editions published between 1996 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,820 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this classic text, the first full-scale application of cognitive science to politics, George Lakoff analyzes the unconscious and rhetorical worldviews of liberals and conservatives, discovering radically different but remarkably consistent conceptions of morality on both the left and right. For this new edition, Lakoff adds a preface and an afterword extending his observations to major ideological conflicts since the book's original publication, from the impeachment of Bill Clinton to the 2000 presidential election and its aftermath." http://catdir.loc.gov/catdir/description/uchi051/2001051052.html

"Don't Think of an Elephant! is the antidote to the last forty years of conservative strategizing and the right wing's stranglehold on political dialogue in the United States. Author George Lakoff explains how conservatives think, and how to counter their arguments. he outlines in detail the traditional American values that progressives hold, but are often unable to articulate. Lakoff also breaks down the ways conservatives have framed the issues, and provides examples of how progressives can reframe the debate." From the bookjacket

The political mind : why you can't understand 21st-century politics with an 18th-century brain by George Lakoff( Book )

9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 955 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume attempts to harness cognitive science to rally progressive politicians and voters by contending that conservatives have framed the debate on vital issues more effectively than liberals. According to this book, conservatives comprehend that most brain functioning is grounded not in logical reasoning but in emotionalism, and as a result, huge portions of the citizenry accept the Republican framing of the war in Iraq and supporting the troops rather than liberal appeals and phrasing of the occupation in Iraq and squandering tax money. The author feels that if citizens and policy-makers better understand brain functioning, hope exists to lessen the effects of global warming and other societal disasters in the making

Now Lakoff shows how progressives can beat conservatives at their own game

Counterparts, or the problem of reference in transformational grammar by George Lakoff( Book )

16 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author feels that although the problem of pronominalization and of reference in general is at the very heart of syntactic investigation, transformational grammarians are unable to deal adequately with these problems. He finds their theory of referential indices (Chomsky, "Aspects of the Theory of Syntax") "completely beyond repair." In this paper he presents a few examples of the failure of referential index theory and indicates the direction in which he thinks a solution will ultimately be found: counterpart theory. (Do)
