Summary "Creativity is fundamental to human experience. In On Creativity, David Bohm, the world-renowned scientist, investigates the phenomenon from all sides: not only the creativity of invention and of imagination but also that of perception and of discovery. The creative impulse is instinctive to everyone, but its revolutionary potential is rarely realised. For, he argues, its success depends upon the individual's ability to jolt the workaday mind into a dynamic state that enables true creativity and originality to become possible. By awakening this creative state of mind each person can then discover the creative harmony that lies not only within their own psyche but also behind everything that they experience."--Jacket
