FOGELIN not go into all this again, but one of my central claims in defending comparativism was that its critics have persistently misrepresented the traditional position by holding that the analysis of metaphors as elliptical similes amounts to reducing metaphors to literal comparisons. This, however, is not the traditional position as formulated, for example, by Aristotle. " Once Black's interpretive error is recognized, most, if not all, of the criticisms of traditional comparativism become moot.

Tirrell's strategy in dealing with the reductive simile theory is to argue that (1) and (3) are both false. " (340) So much, then, for reductionism in all of its forms. Of course, as a defender of what Tirrell calls a nonreductive simile theory, I do not accept (3). Indeed, I have explicitly rejected it. ' (29) It is, however, understandable that Tirrell attributes thesis (1) to me, for in careless moments I actually commit myself to it. ' That is right, and is not something Tirrell disagrees with.
