Creative people at work : twelve cognitive case studies by Doris B Wallace( Book )

25 editions published between 1989 and 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 939 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To demystify creative work without reducing it to simplistic formulas, Doris Wallace and Howard Gruber, one of the world's foremost authorities on creativity, have produced a unique book exploring the creative process in the arts and sciences. The book's original'evolving systems approach' treats creativity as purposeful work and integrates cognitive, emotional, aesthetic, and motivational aspects of the creative process. Twelve revealing case studies explore the work of such diverse people as William Wordsworth, Albert Einstein, Jean Piaget, Anais Nin, and Charles Darwin. The case study approach is discussed in relation to other methods such as biography, autobiography, and psychobiology/ Emphasis is given to the uniqueness of each creative person; the social nature of creative work is also treated without losing the sense of the individual. A final chapter considers the relationship between creativity and morality in the nuclear age.; In addition to developmental psychologists and cognitive scientists, this study offers fascinating insights for all readers interested in the history of ideas, scientific discovery, artistic discovery, artistic innovation, and the interplay of intuition, inspiration, and purposeful work
Contemporary approaches to creative thinking : a symposium held at the University of Colorado by Howard E Gruber( Book )

47 editions published between 1962 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 893 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What is creative thinking? What are its conditions, and how can it be fostered? In the spring of 1958, six eminent scientists gathered at the University of Colorado to consider these questions in a symposium. Each day, for three days, two papers were presented, leaving ample time (if time is ever ample) for discussion of each. The discussions were recorded, transcribed, and then circulated among the participants for whatever use they cared to make of them in revising their papers. This volume is the result"--Preface.

The Psychology of war and peace : the image of the enemy by R. W Rieber( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Can a Baby Be an Enemy? Our world is in a deep, prolonged crisis. The threat of global nuclear war, the chronic condition of local wars, the imperilled environment, and mass star- vation are among the major forms this crisis takes. The dangers of massive overkill, overexploitation of the environment, and overpopulation are well known, but surprisingly little has been said about their potential interac- tions, their bearing upon each other. If there were to be a nuclear confronta- tion between today's superpowers, it might not take place in today's world, but in a far less friendly habitat, such as the world may be some decades hence. And it need hardly be added that the era of this particular super- power configuration may be waning rapidly, its place to be taken by other international arrangements not necessarily less threatening. To understand and cope with our situation we need correspondingly serious reflection. This volume forms a welcome part of that process. Un- avoidably, a large part of our thinking about the issues of human survival must be oriented to physical and biological aspects of the total danger. But it has not escaped the authors of this book that, coupled with these aspects, there are profound psychological dangers, such as loss of the sense of futu- rity, moral deterioration, and a fatalistic decline in the will to struggle to protect our home, the Earth. --Taken from the Foreword
