Vico’ Semiotic View of Metaphor - According to Vico metaphor is a fundamental and primary instrument of thought. This concept was further developed by Du Marsais and Rousseau. Particularly important is Vico’s concept of poetical logic. Linguistic creativity is the capacity to form new metaphorical associations, to propose new cognitive combinations, and invent new figurations. The species-specific trait of the human being is a modelling device capable of inventing an indeterminate number of worlds. This species-specific human modelling capacity is the lingua mutola, the mute language discussed by Vico: gesture or body language spoken by mankind in its origins. Keywords: Language, Metaphor, Modeling, Poetic Logic, Semiotics, Vico.
