Metaphors II 189
Metaphor/Searle: there is no algorithm to decide whether one is present - it is about non-representational mental skills - similarity between extensions is often not critical.

IV 98
Metaphor/Searle: why do some work and others do not? - E.g. Sally is a block of ice, but not a prime number - solution: a block of ice is not insensitive. - There must be clear rules - metaphorical meaning is always an utterance condition. - SearleVsAll: literal meaning is not sure.

IV 103
Truth conditions are clear.

IV 107
Metaphor is no comparison - this is absurd: "with which block of ice do you compare him?" - Similarity: is nevertheless important for understanding - solution: it is only about Sally.
---
IV 111
Vs interaction theory: there is no interaction between ice block and Sally: you can use someone else - meaning (like Davidson): in the metaphor no meaning changes its expression.
---
IV 113
Negation: is metaphorical as well.
---
IV 122
Metaphor/Searle: VsComparison Theory; there is indeed no resemblance asserted: E.g. "father of the country" - instead: you have to get behind the principles: what are the relevant similarities? Similarity itself is an empty predicate.

IV 134
The basic principle is that only possible values of the metaphorically used expression can be the actual values that determine the possible properties of the object - metaphor needs no convention - (irony neither).
