James Geary presents "I Is an Other"
Join us on Sunday, June 24 at 3pm as James Geary - currently a Neiman Fellow at Harvard, and TEDGlobal 2009 speaker - presents "I Is an Other: The Secret Life of Metaphor and How It Shapes the Way We See the World."
There will be juggling!!
Aphorism enthusiast and author James Geary waxes on a fascinating fixture of human language: the metaphor. Friend of scribes from Aristotle to Elvis, metaphor can subtly influence the decisions we make, Geary says.
Lost jobs, wayward lovers, wars and famine -- come to think of it, just about any of life's curveballs -- there's an aphorism for it, and James Geary's got it.
His presentation is fun, free, and informative!
After the book talk, Mr. Geary will take questions from the audience, then sign books.
