You're still talking to yourself on here after two months?
What are you saying, by the way?
I'm not ashamed to talk to myself. At any time another person could join this forum who gets
it. By it, I mean this value of this particular theme. Lots of folks around here get it
in a general sense of the phrase.
As far as answering your question goes, I am hardly the first person to note the importance of metaphor in philosophy. Rorty, Davidson, Hesse, Derrida, etc. Also Anatole France wrote brilliantly on the subject in the Garden of Epicurus.

Philosophy is metaphorical, yes! But only metaphorically speaking.
Yes, and speaking is largely metaphorical.
