I read 2 of his books "Metaphors we live by" and "Where mathematics comes from" and they are pretty good. Viewing the world as a bunch of metaphors is pretty interesting.

While I can't say I fully understand all the concepts he discusses, it definitely is interesting how our pattern of thoughts is affected by the words we use, and the way
language is structured. His works seem to have massive implications in psychological research.

It's funny cos my Arabic teacher mentioned this "metaphors we live by" book a couple of times, and he has this funny accent it took me some time to understand what the title was, and then 2 days after, I see it here, I guess at least I should give this book a try....
also reminds me I have to study
