Back when I was learning that the mitochondria was the powerhouse of the cell, I thought the key to learning anything was through analogy. It oversimplifies the process, but learning is fundamentally about using prior knowledge to understand new ideas.

Now you can expect someone to bring up false equivalence as soon as you make one and that person might be stupid enough to insist an analogy is bad because it's an analogy. They could be right about the false equivalence, depending on the argument, but this instinctive backlash may also be the product of a changing culture. Do you think this is a good thing?


Analogies are like food. Some are great, others are trash.


Love food analogies. They work in every situation.
I don't think there's anything wrong with analogies or metaphors. Works pretty well, right?


I don't think I have a problem with the idea in principle but of the top of my head I can't think of any that have actually been useful.
