Resumo

 teoria da metáfora conceitual de George Lakoff and Mark Johnson é uma poderosa ferramenta metodológica que tem sido usada em diversos campos acadêmicos para investigar uma série de questões relativas à cognição humana. A teoria da metáfora conceitual sugere que tanto nosso sentido pré-teorico sobre o que é conhecer algo quanto nossas práticas de aquisição de conhecimento serão formados por metáforas conceituais, quaisquer que sejam elas, que operam nos nossos processos cognitivos, e estas podem diferir entre as culturas. Eu proponho que olhar para as ciências naturais como extensões de um sentido específico pré-teórico do que é o conhecer, aquele que mapeia cognitivamente o conhecimento sobre a experiência do ver, contribui para uma explicação de porque a ciência moderna emergiu no Ocidente e não na China.
