Detailed case studies of imaginative discourses in technical prose, geology, physics, and genetic engineering, as well as in poetics, contemporary painting, philosophy, and history. The thread uniting all of the essays is that metaphors, scenarios, and myths are fundamental to both the scientific and artistic imagination.
