Saccaro-Battisti, Giuseppa (also, Giuseppa Saccaro Battisti). "Changing Metaphors of Political Structures." Journal of the History of Ideas 44 (Jan.-March 1983): 31-54.

Originally scheduled to appear in revised and expanded form in CW[1], this essay includes a highly relevant and important discussion of metaphors "describing the socio-political structure as a machine" or "comparing this structure to the human body" (33).
