 Metaphor, analogy and the like (models, archetypes, domain to domain mapping, etc.) have long been expressive tools. Comparing the known to the unknown is a matter of what one knows. So, at times, for a novice to a knowledge community, it seems that the unknown is compared to the even more unknown. Having metaphor multiplicity might help to alleviate the dilemma for the novice were the universe of the known touches on the knowledge base of more people. That is a particular goal of the Metaphor in Professions topic. One might draw on the statement by Tim Rohrer, Department of Philosophy, University of Oregon, Eugene, Oregon, "...solving paradoxes is a metaphorical representation of the process of inquiry into truth".
 
-This topic might also lend insight into how particular professions use metaphors. For example, social-economic prejudice, preference or orientations might surface in the the metapors used in professions. Do engineers objectify people more than say aritst --- Positivist vs Humanist? Thus, though not explicitly designed for it, this topic might serve as resource for metaphoic research, conceptual metaphor theory, etc..

 It should be noted that poetics as herein considered is not limited to words. Thus, metaphor can just as easlily be between images that are literally images or any x::y. Language extends beyond literature. Further, knowledge extends beyond "thinking" per se, extending to feeling or awareness. In as much, a goal of the topic is to reach these extensions.
