7. The Mutual Transcription of Metaphors in the Fields of Natural Sciences, Social Sciences, and Cultural Studies

The field of physics, which examines electron spin resonance in crystals for example, also works with metaphors; cf. Schwoerer and Wolf (2005, 160). For a metaphorical understanding of the genetic code see Barbieri (2007b⁠, 2004). However, this approach bears the danger of obscuring the view that the genetic code should not only be interpreted as a metaphor, but that it itself operates through metaphors, too.
