In Praise of Ignorance
Formica, Piero
Industry and Higher Education, v28 n5 p307-310 Oct 2014
In this article Piero Formica examines the difference between incremental and revolutionary innovation, distinguishing between the constrained "path finders" and the unconstrained "path creators". He argues that an acceptance of "ignorance" and a willingness to venture into the unknown are critical elements in radically creative innovation and entrepreneurship. [This article is an extract from the forthcoming book "The Role of Creative Ignorance: Portraits of Path Finders and Path Creators" by Piero Formica, to be published in December 2014 by Palgrave-Macmillan, New York.]
