Episode 12: A Special Interview with Dr. George Lakoff
What George Lakoff is about is framing – essentially how we think. He challenges the given – what we believe and take for granted. He encourages us to join him in this endeavor and to question the assumptions that “frame” our lives. We encourage our readers to listen to the research Lakoff presents and become critically conscious of the ways in which language is used to shape the circumstances of our everyday lives.
