Babuts argues that humans achieve recognition by integrating stimulus sequences with corresponding patterns that recognize and interpret each segment of a text. Memory produces meaning from these patterns. In harmony with its goals, memory may adopt specific strategies to deal with different stimuli. Dynamic patterns link the unit of processing with the unit of meaning. In sum, Babuts proposes that meaning is achieved through metaphors and narrative, and that both are ways to reach cognitive goals.

Literary dynamic patterns -- The beginning of interpretation -- Reading poetry -- The allure of myth -- Beginnings and endings -- Metaphoric fields : Blaga, Melville, and Leopardi -- The tonality of metaphoric fields.
