Product Details

Praise

“Students in poetry and creative writing courses will find that Holyoak’s questions, illuminations, and provisional explanations offer fruitful metaphors for the construction of reflective practices. Students in cognitive psychology courses will find, particularly in the notes and bibliography, ideas aplenty for directions in which to continue research in creative processes or language processing. Throughout one finds spots to stop and linger over a word, an insight, a diagram.”—Choice

“Can scientists apply and contribute their expertise to the arts, and vice versa? The Spider’s Thread: Metaphor in Mind, Brain, and Poetry by Dr. Keith Holyoak addresses this disconnect between science and art, beginning with discussions of neuroscience, philosophy, and linguistics, and moving on to a discussion of creative writing in poetry. Dr. Holyoak identifies and proposes potential methods of interconnection and cross-disciplinary proficiency. [ . . . ] It is a wonderful resource for academics, students,  artists, and scientists alike.”—Philosophical Psychology


“​If you are ready for a twisty climb, hand-in-hand with a curious, enthusiastic, and steadfast companion, you’ll be rewarded with some wonderful views. This book is a love song to poetry and you’ll surely be singing along.”—The Psychologist
