Creativity and Imagination as an Educational Goal
In today’s technical world innovation is a prized asset. Innovation or the quest for the new has many benefits but also has a darker side. The quest for the new can often be at odds with what is universal and enduring in human life. True creativity is achieved when the new and the enduring meet in harmonic synthesis. In his lecture Dennis Klocek will trace the stages of the creative process of fertilization, incubation, ripening and flowering. Truly creative thinking engenders imaginative capacity that give birth to new ideas that are resonant with the enduring human values that form the basis of true society.
