Product description

Review

A signal testimonial to the creative spirit. . . . A brilliantly incisive exploration of the creative 'encounter' the coming to grips of the healthily committed creative artist or thinker with his sociocultural background and with his own dangerously Promethean impulses. "

Another in Dr. May's extraordinary, wise, and hopeful . . . series of nearly poetic meditations on the future of mankind. "

A lucid and highly concentrated analysis of the creative process.... [May] describes the requisites for the creative encounter and the moment of the 'breakthrough.' "

A signal testimonial to the creative spirit.... A brilliantly incisive exploration of the creative 'encounter' the coming to grips of the healthily committed creative artist or thinker with his sociocultural background and with his own dangerously Promethean impulses. "

Synopsis

Believing that creativity is central to our being, May outlines the limits to what we know and do not know about creativity. He links the element of courage to creativity to reveal the process of discovery in which a person generates new forms and patterns that build new social systems.
