  • Spotted @cbu_library @cbuniversity newly @uchicagopress published work by our own Dr. Andrew S. Reynolds "The Third Lens: Metaphor and the Creation of Modern Cell Biology." Does science aim at providing an account of the #world that is literally true or objectively true? Understanding the difference requires paying close attention to #metaphor and its role in #science. In #TheThirdLens, Dr. Andrew S.

More than just rhetorical devices for conveying difficult ideas, metaphors provide the conceptual means with which #scientists interpret and intervene in the world. #CBUFA #cbuniversity #capebretonuniversity #uchicago #uchicagopress #moderncell #biology #philosophy #CBU #capebreton #novascotia #nspse #cdnpse #pse #highered #education #community #teaching #research #service #students #faculty
