Everybody is creative. So how can we cultivate our creativity and live richer, more creative lives? In this course, philosopher Dr. Will Buckingham explores what creativity is, and how we can nurture our own creativity. Everyday philosophy: The Art of Creativity draws on insights from philosophers both East and West, to deepen your understanding of creativity. And it gives you practical strategies for bringing more creativity into your life, your work and your play. Whatever you want to create — a new work of art, a new business, a new social movement, a new world — this course will help you understand how to make this happen.
