Blog / 2013 / The Dancing Argument

August 19, 2013

This vlog stems from a skimming of Metaphors We Live By by George Lakoff and Mark Johnson. The tone of the book was more academic than I like, so I didn’t read the whole thing, just the first few chapters—which is where the “argument is war” and “argument is dance” idea comes from. For more information about how to make a living as an artist who does not see art as intellectual property, check out this business model.
