Essays on Creativity and Science. Proceedings of the Creativity and Science Conference (Honolulu, Hawaii, March 23-24, 1985).
DeLuca, Diana Macintyre, Ed.
Essays focusing on creativity in the humanities and sciences are contained in this proceedings of the Creativity and Science Conference. The presentors, who represented many academic disciplines, agreed that creativity is as essential to the scientist as to the humanist and that one can prepare for it but not instruct or be instructed in achieving it. The essays are organized by the themes of: (1) historical perspectives on scientific creativity; (2) neurological and psychological views; (3) science and human values; (4) educating for creativity; (5) toward a theory of scientific creativity; (6) science and the arts; and (7) case studies and personal accounts. Keynote speeches are included on such topics as imagination, the genesis of atomic physics, modern science and pantheism, life and mind in the universe, and why machines cannot do science. Also reported are two pre-conference events that highlighted science in pictures and poetry on science. (ML)
