We usually conceive thinking as a controlled and rational process. However ; it seems that important elements of thinking happen outside our familiar sphere of direct conscious control and explicit logical thought: the formation of associations ; the springing up of ideas ; the 'smelling' of a solution that directs further conscious search. This talk focuses on some of these 'prerational' elements of thinking and discusses conceptual approaches to model them ; with an eye towards implementing aspects of prerational thinking in computers or robots in order to create a basis for machine intelligence beyond the mere linking of rules of logic.
