A Story Within a Story

A Story Within a Story is a project focused on the structural determinants of the Ericksonian Metaphors. Its main goal is to create clear and easily applicable patterns for creating the ericksonian metaphors.

Most of the studies focused on this topic are in their nature rather descriptive and are focused on the content rather than the structure. There are few simple cues identified and the metaphors are described in many ways. How ever there was none study performed ever focused in identifying the general formula of the metaphor-building process ever.

The methods applied to this study are of quantitative nature. The original transcripts of the stories told by Milton H. Erickson are being analyzed within this project in search of the common structure underlying the metaphors.


The models created in this way will be empirically tested in a variety of ways.
