Crystal L. Downing
Like all signs, my metaphor cannot fully capture the Truth that transcends all signification. Nevertheless, humans are limited to signs, which function like the mirror

Lewis, then, would agree with Ricoeur and Derrida-that there is no escaping metaphoric language in order to get at pure unadulterated truth; we always understand reality through the metaphors we use. And this is as true for atheists as it is for Christians.
