Example text

If we express an analogy in a single surface sentence containing an explicit relational word such as like, we will produce a simile, as in (2) The earth is like a solitary ship. The analogy remains explicit in the simile. If we make it implicit, through avoidance of explicit relational words, we will produce a metaphor: (3) The earth is a solitary ship. A metaphor may grow out of an analogy, but it is important to recognize that it is a vastly different creature. An analogy is a caterpillar crawling on a leaf, while a metaphor is a monarch in flight on a sunlit day.

This becomes painfully obvious as we try to mete out damages for injuries, penalities for failure to meet contractual commitments, punishments for crimes ranked according to their seriousness, and rights of competing or conflicting parties. Witness, for instance, our attempts in legal and moral philosophy to balance off rights of women with putative rights of foetuses.
