Word of the Week: Aperçu

As in:  “[Roger] Shuy has become famous in his discipline for some of the field’s finest Holmesian aperçus.”

Hitt, J.  (2012, July 23).  Words on Trial: Can linguists solve crimes that stump the police?  The New Yorker, 88(21), 26

The library’s Credo Reference collection of e-books includes several articles on aspects of aperçu such as those in the Encyclopedia of Consciousness in the article “Intuition, Creativity, and Unconscious Aspects of Problem Solvings  and Elsevier’s Dictionary of Psychological Theories in the article “Theories of Intuition”.  Credo Reference – a collection of over 590 reference titles covering a variety of disciplines– is frequently a good source to use when beginning your research.
