    This is a book which explores creativity by looking at what artificial intelligence tells us about the nature of thought Somewhat technical the book still offers some fascinating insights into how creativity develops One point Boden makes is that science does not predict but explains; nor does it focus on the uniue nor even the precise but on laws She talks about the random the chance the chaotic but essentially what creativity reuires is a prepared mind and an almost ruthless devotion to the endeavor Mozart had a good short term memory much experience and a life devoted to music Boden challenges some of the intuitive explanations for creativity She also says that it does not diminish creativity to try to understand it If we can understand we can believe that it can be achieved by ordinary individuals If one discounts effort and motivation then many people will not aspire to creativity She agrees with Weisberg Sternberg and others that it is a part of our normal thought processes She also talks about P creativity and H Creativity The P type being a process that is original with the individual the H that which has significance in the society The society also has to be ready Ideas are around a long time before the society is ready to accept them She makes useful distinctions between science and technology; between art and spontaneity She sees art as reuiring discipline and constraints as does science She does not see science as precise than art but another domain The biographical material she offers is useful She asks uestions about the possibility of creativity being duplicated by a computer if it is appropriately programmed Much of what we think needs to respond to the definition of different words What is intuition for example but unexamined thought She talks about the world that was imagined before Copernicus Darwin and Freud She is for understanding and not ignorance

    I love this book It is full of interesting ideas presented in a clear and fun fashion I'm still working on it so I'll post a full review when I'm done with it

    Trying to understand the answer to what creates creativity but Boden states within her essay Thinking is Impossible is that the full concept of creativity cannot be learned even if we try to practice it Simply believing in a unicorn isn’t enough proof one can dream of one however they should know that there is no such thing of this form of creation – meaning one can never discover full originality At the closing sentence she asks her readers “what is creativity” but determines them to stay hopeful because one day the answer might arise We know that creativity cannot fully be understood but I think the best solution is to keep trying to keep the surprises coming in order for creativity to live on just like imagination

  4. Alexi Parizeau Alexi Parizeau says:

    I read this just to see what Computational Creativity was like before Deep Learning Though the examples are now very dated Boden's theoretical perspective is still relevant and inspiring especially Chapter 9

  5. Steve Steve says:

    Pretty interesting book but I got tired of it about halfway through Very interesting take on the intersection of psychology described through computational analysis
