Unravelling the Mysteries of the Creative Mind: Scott Barry Kaufman and Carolyn Gregoire with David Epstein

Mar 8, 2016

Is it possible to make sense of something as elusive as creativity? Psychologist Scott Barry Kaufman and journalist Carolyn Gregoire offer a glimpse inside the “messy minds” of highly creative people. Revealing the latest findings in neuroscience and psychology, along with engaging examples of artists and innovators throughout history, this discussion will shine a light on the practices and habits of mind that promote creative thinking. Kaufman and Gregoire untangle a series of paradoxes — like mindfulness and daydreaming, seriousness and play, openness and sensitivity, and solitude and collaboration — to show that it is by embracing our own contradictions that we are able to tap into our deepest creativity.
