520    "Metaphors are essential to scientists themselves and 
       strongly influence science communication. Through careful 
       analyses of metaphors actually used in science texts, 
       recordings, and videos, this book explores the essential 
       functions of conceptual metaphor in the conduct of science,
       teaching of science, and how scientific ideas are promoted
       and popularized. With an accessible introduction to theory
       and method this book prepares scientists, science teachers,
       and science writers to take advantage of recent shifts in 
       metaphor theories and methods. Metaphor specialists will 
       find theoretical issues explored in studies of 
       bacteriology, cell reproduction, marine biology, physics, 
       brain function and social psychology. We see the degree of
       conscious or intentional use of metaphor in shaping our 
       conceptual systems and constraining inferences. Metaphor 
       sources include social structure, embodied experience, 
       abstract or mathematical formulations. The results are 
       sometimes innovative hypotheses and robust conclusions; 
       other times pedagogically useful, if inaccurate, stepping 
       stones or, at worst, misleading fictions"--|cProvided by
