I'm not sure about the inability to think in terms of metaphors or symbols being as big of a problem as not being able to recognize metaphors, symbols, or anything tending towards the poetic as being such. Thomas Jefferson took the gospels and extracted all the improbable events therein, leaving many level-headed lessons that could not be not hindered by literal-mindedness. Not a bad idea if there is any chance of misinterpreting allegory for reality.
