Re: On consilience and literary Darwinism (weblog post) PS
- Of course our folk culture makes the distinction:any rule-based activity is a "science"any non-rule-based activity is an "art"life - and all its activities - are an artformulae/algos are a "science"creating them/applying them/using them is an "art"
- Hi Michael,
Exactly! - All the different "folk definitions" of Creativity are the exact problem...
(As an experiment - ask the next 3 people you see/meet to define "creativity".
See if the 3 answers given `match' at all, and also - see if any of them are: the systems model of creativity... ie - Csikszentmihalyi: 1988, 1996, 2000, etc)
- This is why, we all desperately need Consilience... - We need Science, and Social Science, applied to the Arts/Humanities. (Like Csikszentmihalyi, Simonton etc, and, Literary Darwinism)
All else (all non-scientific/non-empirical belief), is just personal opinion - and, will not help any Creative (novelist, painter, filmmaker etc) succeed - nor will it help anyone usefully analyze creativity, in the arts/humanities. (So, thank goodness for Literary Darwinism...!) And, also: for Science.
