Teaching Abstracting in an Integrated Art and Science Curriculum.
Root-Bernstein, Robert S.
Roeper Review, v13 n2 p85-90 Jan 1991
Abstracting (eliminating details from a complex perceptual field to reveal underlying structures) is described as a tool of thought for developing creativity and inventiveness. The paper argues that the skill of abstracting is transferable between arts and sciences, and provides a preliminary model to teaching abstracting in a multidisciplinary setting. (JDD)
