The roots of human creativity and its relation to nature.
on 26 March 1997
THE ACT OF CREATION has attracted a cult following since its original 1964 publication. It set the stage for much of the "New Age" literature of the following decades.
Koestler draws analogies between human creativity and evolution in nature, seeing them as two different aspects of a single process.
Koestler's writing is eminently readable and still highly topical three decades later.
