Its extra goal is to bare a deep divergence of views among the cognitive and hermeneutical ways to the that means of phrases. The argument can be summarised as follows: the difficulty of the illustration of lexical senses (available out of context) presupposes the problem of detailed meanings of phrases in communal use, which in flip presupposes the query of the transformative strength of phrases (in linguistics, articulated by means of Humboldt as energeia). briefly, the booklet proposes to counterpoint a put up hoc static cognitive technique with a dynamic "expressive" one.

He has released books to date. In Znaczenie ucieleśnione (2005) ["Embodied meaning"], he opposes the cognitive place at the "embodiment of meaning", as defined by way of Lakoff and his affiliates, to the hermeneutical interpretation of this idea when it comes to articulation. In Metafora pojęciowa a tradycja (2006) ["Conceptual metaphor and tradition"], he bargains a critique of the cognitive conception of metaphor when it comes to the "interactive conception" and the "Romantic tradition".
