This work develops a theoretical framework for a psychology of thinking based on an analysis of writing. It draws on recent research literature in an effort to understand the process of writing, on the one hand, and performance measures of writing skill, on the other. Central to the author's argument is the contention that the human mind first and foremost creates and manipulates visual images and consensual symbols in an effort to render experience meaningful.
