    Analogical reasoning is a ubiquitous process playing a pivotal role in many disparate cognitive processes from induction, through metaphor interpretation, to creativity. We examine the role of analogy in creative reasoning highlighting the many similarities between both reasoning mechanisms. We interpret creativity as the search for some source analogue with which to reinterpret a given target domain. Such a mapping has the attractive quality that it explains anomalies in the current target interpretation. We have chosen as a basis for a detailed examination, creativity within the science domain as we feel that this offers the best opportunity for computational modelling.
