TITLE: "What Were Alleged to be Ideas" AUTHOR: Eugene Wallingford DATE: June 30, 2012 10:52 AM DESC: ----- BODY: James Webb Young begins his book A Technique for Producing Ideas with a prefatory note:
The subject is properly one which belongs to the professional psychologist, which I am not. This treatment of it, therefore, can have value only as an expression of the personal experience of one who has had to earn his living by producing what were alleged to be ideas.
With a little tweaking, such as occasionally substituting a different profession for psychologist, this would make a nice disclaimer for many of my blog entries. Come to think of it, with a little tweaking, this could serve as the basis of a disclaimer for about 98% of the web. Thanks to David Schmüdde for a pointer to Young's delightful little book. -----
