Metaphors in creative scientific thought

Journal/Book: Creativity Res J. 1996; 9: 355 Chestnut St, Norwood, NJ 07648. Ablex Publ Corp. 113-130.

Abstract: This article explores the role played by metaphors in creative scientific thought. The research necessarily touches on scientific realism, and so causal theory of reference plays an essential role. Actual cases from scientific research are considered. There emerges a view of scientific creativity in which science advances through an assimilation/accommodation process in which metaphors and correspondence principles are essential. Natural inclusion of causal theory of reference with metaphors means continuous theory change while ontology remains fixed.
