  1. FARTHER is used for phys­i­cal dis­tance: He ran far­ther today than yesterday.

    FURTHER is used for fig­u­ra­tive (fig­ure of speech/symbolic) dis­tance: Let’s talk further.

    Professor Paul Brians says some peo­ple use them inter­change­ably, but that can be a slip­pery slope. http://public.wsu.edu/~brians/errors/farther.html
