    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    The study examines the metaphorically shaped inventories of knowledge that help constitute discourses of economic and sociopolitical crisis, and their role in legitimizing policy interventions. The author proposes the metaphoric scenario as a unit of analysis and applies it to three crisis discourses: the “oil crisis”, the discussions about “Germany as a business location”, and “Agenda 2010.”
