"There are books--few and far between--which carefully, delightfully, and genuinely turn your head inside out. This is one of them. It ranges over some central issues in Western philosophy and begins the long overdue job of giving us a radically new account of meaning, rationality, and objectivity."--Yaakov Garb, "San Francisco Chronicle"

Introduction: The Context and Nature of This Study

The Emergence of Meaning through Schematic Structure
Gestalt Structure as a Constraint on Meaning
Metaphorical Projections of Image Schemata
How Schemate Constrain Meaning, Understanding, and Rationality
Toward a Theory of Imagination
On the Nature of Meaning
""All This, and Realism Too!""
