Come explore journeys of creativity with Searle Professor of Economics and Management Jonathan Feinstein, one of Yale’s most popular teachers. How do creators find their way to exciting original ideas? Professor Feinstein will present an illustrated framework to help us think about Albert Einstein, Mark Rothko, Jef Raskin and others. He addresses creativity in all areas of human endeavor, making this event of interest to all Yale alumni and guests.
While it is common to focus on the moment of inspiration as the essence of creativity, he takes a more encompassing and organic approach, studying how creativity and innovation are generated through an unfolding process of development….He is the author of The Nature of Creative Development which describes the process of creative development with many examples drawn from a wide range of fields. His work extends from individual creativity to the study of the development of fields. In his view many creative links go unrecognized and unappreciated: In the winding path of a person’s creative development there are many influences that are not evident in that person’s ultimate creative work but were essential to its creation.
The evening at the University Club, 1673 Sherman Street, Denver, gets underway with a reception at 6:00 pm with hors d’oeuvres and cash bar. After his presentation, Professor Feinstein will entertain questions.
