Reflections on metaphors imply and presuppose – due to the complex semantic structure of metaphors – fundamental epistemological convictions about word and object, language and ontology, truth and knowledge. It is precisely this epistemological dimension that also makes metaphors a rich and interesting object of poetics. Our article describes the shift from a model of metaphors as substitution (of direct representations) to a more constructive and non-mimetic model derived from Immanuel Kant’s transcendental philosophy. We then situate the poetics of key 20th-century German authors within this conceptual framework.
