Point of Inquiry — George Lakoff

George Lakoff is a cognitive linguist at the University of California at Berkeley. But unlike many of his scientific peers, he's known as much for his work on politics as for his research. Lakoff the famed author of many books on why the left and right disagree about politics, including Moral Politics, Don't Think of an Elephant, Thinking Points, and most recently, The Political Mind: Why You Can't Understand 21st Century Politics with an 18th Century Brain. Throughout these works Lakoff has applied cognitive and linguistic analysis to our political rifts, and his ideas about "framing," "metaphor," and the different moral systems of liberals and conservatives have become very widely known and influential.

Philosophers Zone - 18 December 2010 - Bah humbug - Why Ebenezer Scrooge is actually a man of principle

http://www.abc.net.au/rn/philosopherszone/stories/2010/3091992.htm Ebenezer Scrooge is one of the few people you are allowed to hate at Christmas, or at least you're allowed to 'dislike' what he stands for. Miserly and lacking in empathy, Scrooge is essentially a joyless, friendless, humourless, lonely old man. But was he morally bad as common wisdom would have it? Our guest this week says NO. Ebenezer Scrooge was as a man of ethical principle.
