The term metaphor has a long history in HCI , has been the cause of many debates, and remains a central element of user interface design practice. This talk summarises results from a recent project investigating the intellectual history of HCI metaphor, not only from the familiar perspective of the technical development of the modern UI, but also from less familiar perspectives in education, philosophy and sociology of science. The historical development of the concept is contrasted with attitudes among contemporary HCI researchers in order to propose appropriate strategies for future research and design methods.
