URIBE BOTERO, Ángela. ¿Puede el uso de metáforas ser peligroso?: Sobre las pastorales de monseñor Miguel Ángel BuilesCan the Use of Metaphors Be Dangerous?: On the Letters of Monsignor Miguel Ángel Builes. rev.estud.soc. [online]. 2009, n.34, pp.113-122. ISSN 0123-885X.

In this text I attempt to answer the following question: How to shed light on the process that occurs between defending an ideology and producing dangerous perlocutionary acts? To answer this question I turn to a specific example, an actor in the recent history of Colombia, and specifically to his use of metaphors and the strength with which said use converted abstract into concrete and made the complex appear simple.

Keywords : Metaphor; Perlocutionary Acts; Ideologies; Monseñor Builes.
