"An Honest Liar tells the story of the world-famous magician, escape artist and enemy of deception, James 'The Amazing' Randi. He devised intricate invesigations exposing the 'miracles' of psychics, faith healers and con-artists. A master deceiver who came out of the the closet [at] 81, Randi created fictional characters, fake psychics, and even turned his partner of 25 years, the artist Jose Alvarez, into a sham guru named Carlos.

Creativity and the prepared mind by Ray Hyman( Book )

4 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author is concerned with the role of preconception in the process of creative thinking, and as a psychologist, he experimented to determine what variables influence creative thinking. In the process of experimentation, however, he began to feel that some specific preconceptions were warping his investigation and were detrimental to a useful study of creativity. In this report he reviews the various modes of approaching analysis of creative cognition, pointing out their shortcomings, in particular isolating variables of behavior rather than identifying systems of behavior. The implication is that modern data gathering methods are tailored to the method of analysis, not the content under analysis. The author emphasizes the need for more creative "cognitive maps," internalized modes of thinking, to be brought to the question of analyzing creative intelligence. Prefatory remarks by Manuel Barkan relate the author's presentation to the interests of the art education profession. (Jm)

Coding Systems in Perception and Cognition( Book )

4 editions published between 1968 and 1972 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The variety of experiments completed under the contract successfully isolated ways that humans encode and employ information to meet task demands. The results indicate that, when a stimulus is presented, two or more separate coding processes proceed in parallel. One process may build up an iconic representation of the stimulus object; another process is the retrieval of one or more name codes for the stimulus pattern. For some tasks the response depends completely on the iconic code; for others it depends on the name code. Not only do humans typically convert iconic codes into name codes (abstraction), but, when the occasion is appropriate, they can reverse the process and generate iconic representations from name codes. The build up or construction of the iconic representations appears to take place in a three-dimensional analog medium. (Author Modified Abstract)
