    Dear Willard,

    A book I recently read (and since recommended to all my friends and some
    colleagues) is on thinking and intuition, inspirational about how much of
    our "intuitive" thinking still is rational, just not part of the conscious
    processes, with lots of empirical evidence of ho wwe can know about it:

    G. Claxton, *Hair Brain, Tortoise Mind. Why Intelligence Increases When We
    Think Less* (4th Estate London 1997)

    (I know that the subtitle looks like one of those self-help books, but it
    is not!)

    Quite relevant to imagination I think.
