My life has been dominated by a belief in the importance of imagery as a paramount cognitive tool. I value the image over language for two reasons. The first is that I see the image as open-ended and experience-based, and language as closed and institutionally controlled. The second is that I have always paid close attention to the nature of seeing or learning. Involvement in the press (Poltroon Press, which she and Alastair Johnston founded in 1975], and my other projects has made me able to base much of my theoretical writing on my own experience, an unusual stance now, when the academic pressure for repetitive credentialization has clogged the arteries of actual thought.
