Metaphors Rorty III 44
Metaphor/Davidson: having a meaning means having a place in a language game. Metaphors have no place per definition. Metaphors interrupt a conversation. They do not convey any message. Metaphors cannot be paraphrased.

Rorty III 50
Metaphor/Davidson: new metaphor does not express what has been there before, although it is caused by it.

Dav II 168
Davidson (in conversation with Joachim Schulte): there are no metaphors, only literal meaning: human rat: meaning: contemptible fur animal, not contemptible man.
Metaphors/Davidson: are causes, but not reasons for a change of beliefs.

Dav II 168
Metaphor/Davidson: For example, if I call someone a "rat", the meaning is "little fur animal" etc. - not "contemptible person". - Someone who wants to understand the metaphor must know what a rat is. - ("first meaning") - "rat" is not ambiguous. - Solution/Davidson: new: two intentions simultaneously.
