What does mere seeing mean what

Abstract

The EU would like to be a "global player" who takes the ball off the big boys on the playing field of world economy and world politics. In politics and the media, most of them want to see the EU as a global player, regardless of their party-political and ideological positioning. But what does this metaphor mean? What associations does it arouse and what are the underlying assumptions? In her socio-theoretical and multidisciplinary analysis, Karin Bischof deciphered the "global player" as the embodiment of neoliberal constraint logic and hegemonic masculinity and makes "new" neoliberal mechanisms of inclusion and exclusion of (migrant) others visible. The metaphor analysis shows that political rhetoric works - and metaphors of the political are anything but mere ornament.
