This course examines the nature of human creativity. Through readings of creative thinkers from diverse fields such as mathematics, music, science, poetry and art reflecting on their own creativity, students will study what makes creative individuals creative. Their insights into the process of creative thinking will provide a window into students’ own minds, as they reflect on such issues as the nature of the creative process, where ideas come from, the role of dreams and the unconscious in creativity, the relation of creative individuals to society, and the idea of personal identity and style.
