Where does creativity come from? And how do you harness it? In an edited extract from Imagine: How Creativity Works published in Guardian Weekend magazine, science writer Jonah Lehrer offers compelling insights into the left-or-right-hemisphere debate – linking neuroscience, Bob Dylan, aSTG, an inverted steel pyramid and a $100 bill.
Jonah Lehrer will be discussing creativity as part of the Canongate Talks series in Edinburgh on 28 April. Canongate Talks is a new series of events in Edinburgh with leading writers and thinkers from science, literature, philosophy, psychology, arts and culture.
Imagine: How Creativity Works by Jonah Lehrer is published by Canongate Books on 19 April.
