New article on metaphoricity in social interaction by Thomas Wiben Jensen

CHI member Thomas Wiben Jensen (together with Elena Cuffari) has published the article: “Doubleness in Experience: Toward a Distributed Enactive Approach to Metaphoricity” in Metaphor and Symbol.

The article argues for a new orientation to metaphor and metaphoricity based on enactive and distributed cognition and distributed language focusing on doubleness in meaning, affordances for co-action, co-ordination, and co-experience. Metaphoricity is explored as a gradable and particular type of coordination process that makes a doubleness in experience available for the participants in social interaction.
