METAPHORS OF ECONOMIC GROWTH

Language shapes thought, and when we talk about abstract subjects, we almost invariably engage with them using metaphors. In this short summary of my Masters thesis, I deconstruct the metaphors that are used to describe economic growth, exposing how they lead to flawed reasoning, and explore the weakness of the current environmental counter-narrative. I then propose new metaphors that could help in the transition to a sustainable economy.

BRAHMSIAN BALLISTICS

In my undergraduate thesis, I argue that Brahms's late piano music is so enigmatic because it defies the ordinary rules of musical gravity. The body of the essay is an analysis of the famous A major intermezzo.
