One thought on “The Creative Process: Reflections on Invention in the Arts and Sciences

  1. Penny

    I only read certain sections of this book, but it was a broad sampling of mathematicians, scientist, musicians and poets The common theme seems to be the now familiar idea that your brain is working on things even when you aren t actively struggling with them In fact, the alternating pattern of work and rest appears to be necessary for creativity to happen.This may not be earth shattering news to anyone today, but it isn t always easy to actually put into practice the things we know Somehow, hav [...]

  2. James M. Madsen, M.D.

    I read this when it was entitled simply The Creative Process The anthology is an illuminating collection of material from authors, musicians, and scientists about how they individually perceive elements of the mystery of creative inspiration The individual entries are all in the first person and are culled from historical sources for example, one entry is from a letter from Mozart and suffer from not having been initially composed with the goal of the book in mind However, the entries are nevert [...]

  3. Daniel Schulte

    This was a really fun book to read about how people receive inspiration on their creative works I was fascinated to read about the different ways that people approach solving the large problem of, Create something new Using their advice, I think I m going to go on a walk until some genius idea hits me accidentally That s not what this book really claims, but I was surprised to see how many people spoke of their great ideas as strokes of inspiration.

  4. Seth

    The beginnings of an exploration of the idea of process Not sure where this idea is leading This book is a fascinating look at different artists, scientists, mathematicians, etc and their ideas about how they create Has not been updated in many years, so there are no entries from anyone who has been active only in the past few decades, but an excellent overview nonetheless.

  5. Kasandra

    Excellent Has essays from people as varied as Mozart and Einstein on creativity and their creative process Many quotable passages in the book, and valuable in terms of thinking about your own creative process Will definitely refer to this one again and again, re reading sections that have been dogeared and underlined

  6. Jessica

    Though I struggled through his introduction, I took a lot of ideas from it The rest of the book covers artists Mozart, James, Wordsworth, Yeats, Miller, Nietzche, Lawrence and their thought on the creative process.

  7. Sara Bowling

    This book bridged what I felt about the creative process and what I needed to begin to wonder about the CP A nice marriage of psychology and creativity, some of it is now outdated It helped me in grad school, though, and demystified the curious notion of creative madness.

  8. Nathan

    Amazing book It was hard work to read, but every few pages something would leap out and change your life.

  9. Adam

    This book purports to reveal insights into the creative process through essays and letters written by accomplished names in various professions There are two approaches to compiling and presenting such work that I believe would succeed 1 To dive deep into the material, excising most of the text and focusing solely on the most illuminating currents of thought specifically regarding the creation of each author s works This would result in a very brief book best suited toward devotional study of on [...]

  10. Len

    I cannot imagine a writer failing to get something out of this book It s a collection of essays and not all of them are about writing Some are about the visual arts One is a letter by Albert Einstein Another, by Roger Sessions, is about musical composition Even the art of sculpture is not forgotten Most, however, are about writing as writing is believed to be and, in best cases, is a creative enterprise In a single volume, you will find many writers authors and all of them, it seems, are speakin [...]

    while some essays amaze max ernst s piece is bizarre and alluring , this collection could have benefitted from a wider range of contributions from creatives in different fields it sometimes lingers too long on one form of creativity at the expense of others for instance, poetry is nice but where is the jazz a current compendium on the topic would include computer programmers, bioengineers, audiovisual talents of all stripes, and likely include a diverse, less eurocentric range of voices.

  12. R.W. Clark

    A rather uninspired assembly of how they did it essays The 1960s equivalent of project Gutenberg re publishing old wine in new bottles.It does allow the reader, however, to pick up, read, and put down.

  13. Whoof

    sick selections, wide variety of sources mediums fun looking for common threads between them The subconscious is important.I think Henry Miller s was my favorite.
