The authors develop new perspectives on the image and word as an articulated dense system, presenting them in the form of the instructive model of the diagram. Diagrams are amalgams - hybrid constructions of kwledge. To be intelligible as a means of understanding, diagrams must also be seen as pre-existing elements of the inner world. Diagrammatic thinking reveals cross-references that enable relational, active decision-making.
