Abstract

Conceptual connections that look inevitable in retrospect often come from industrious and dynamic creative work below the horizon of observation. I introduce the theory of conceptual integration and discuss constraints that shape and guide the construction of meaningful connections.

Keywords: analogy, conceptual integration, blending
