Imagine: How Creativity Works
Breakfast Plenary Session
From the bestselling author of "How We Decide" comes a sparkling and revelatory look at the new science of creativity. Shattering the myth of muses, higher powers, even creative "types," Jonah Lehrer demonstrates that creativity is not a single gift possessed by the lucky few. It's a variety of distinct thought processes that we can all learn to use more effectively. Lehrer reveals the importance of embracing the rut, thinking like a child, and daydreaming proactively, then he takes us out of our own heads to show how we can make our neighborhoods more vibrant, our organizations more productive and our our schools more effective.
