Dennett – In Darwin’s Wake, Where Did I Go? ” (Darwin, 1977) 24. But today’s genetic engineers have carried their insight into the molecular innards of the organisms they are trying to create. There is ever more accurate foresight, but even here, if we look closely at the practices in the laboratory, we will find a large measure of exploratory trial and error in their search of the best combinations of genes. Are the products of genetic engineering “Darwinian” products? They are produced not by blind or random trialand-error variation, but by highly intelligent, guided, foresightful processes.

Thoughts, ideas both artistic and scientific, opinions, similarly compete for chances to recur, to spawn elaborations of themselves in private and public. Can a mind, a self, be constructed out of such processes? Darwin showed us how the answer could well be Yes, and no non-miraculous alternatives have ever been formulated.

I tend to favor this latter view and will hypothesize that in the evolution of language metaphor has played a decisive role in the cognitive revolution that preceded the appearance of spoken language. Metaphor can be defined as the mapping of one conceptual domain onto a dissimilar conceptual domain.
