      Subject: [CogLAs] neural imagination

      Following the examples of Professors Holland  and Boyd, I would like to announce the publication of my new book, The Neural Imagination: Aesthetic and Neuroscientific Approaches to the Arts (Austin: University of Texas Press). An appraisal of the book follows:

      Irving Massey has long desired to make a minute comparison of neuroscientific and aesthetic approaches to the arts, and now he has succeeded brilliantly. Moving effortlessly from wonderful examples of music, dreaming, literature, metaphor, and the visual arts to profound questioning of their inner and neural nature, The Neural Imagination combines rigorous scholarship with intensely personal sensibility and style. The power of Massey's own imagination, and his vivid writing, make this book a delight.   Oliver Sacks
