The Aha! Moment: A Scientist's Take on Creativity by David Jones
Johns Hopkins University Press; 1 edition | December 12, 2011 | English | ISBN: 1421403315 | 280 pages | EPUB | 3 MB
This book is about having ideas and—a much longer haul—making them work. David Jones, best known for his Daedalus column, tells a multitude of stories about creators and their creations, including his own fantastical-seeming contributions to mainstream science such as the unrideable bicycle and chemical gardens in space. His theory of creativity endows each of us with a Random-Ideas Generator, a Censor, and an Observer-Reasoner.
