Johnson made image schema one of the cornerstone ideas of the rising experientialist paradigm of Cognitive Linguistics, a framework based upon the rejection of the mind-body dichotomy and stressing the essentially embodied nature of which means, mind's eye and cause - therefore language. Conceived of because the pre-linguistic, dynamic and hugely schematic gestalts coming up at once from motor move, item manipulation, and perceptual interplay, photograph schemas served to anchor summary reasoning and mind's eye to sensori-motor styles within the conceptual idea of metaphor.

Being itself expert via previous crosslinguistic paintings on semantic primitives within the linguistic representations of spatial kin (carried out via L. Talmy, R. Langacker, and others), the thought has encouraged a large number of next learn and debate on assorted matters starting from the which means, constitution and acquisition of average languages to the embodied brain itself.
