Metaphorology and rationality In dialogue with the philosophers Foucault, Derrida, Babermas, Lyotard and Welsch, this study concentrates on broadening the context of research on metaphor from the philosophy of language to that of a contemporary critique of reason. The result of this approach is not only that metaphors are researched from within a new perspective, but also that the relation between metaphor and rationality is reviewed to the extent that it is demonstrated that rationality and even reality show a metaphorical structure at times.
