On the Edge and Keeping On the Edge The University of Georgia Annual Lectures On Creativity by E. Paul Torrance

On the Edge and Keeping On the Edge The University of Georgia Annual Lectures On Creativity


On the Edge and Keeping On the Edge The University of Georgia Annual Lectures On Creativity by E. Paul Torrance

On the Edge and Keeping on the Edge contains the first ten lectures in a series sponsored by the University of Georgia's Torrance Center for Creative Studies. Annually, the Lecture Committee tried to identify someone who was on the cutting edge of creativity research. When a decision was made to publish the first ten lectures, the editor asked each lecturer to describe what he/she had done to keep on the edge. In the first lecture, E. Paul Torrance spoke of his experiences in using his networks to stimulate and keep the creative process flowing. The other areas were creative problem solving (Sidney J. Parnes), the psychology of thinking (Donald J. Treffinger), intergenerational influences (Robert D. Strom), visioning (Joe Khatena), questioning (Garnet Millar), philosophy and ethics (Joseph P. Hester), the Beyonders (Kobus Neethling), and motivation (Dorothy A. Sisk). Volume II will be entitled Going Beyond the Edge. The first ten lectures were by scholars who had taken us to the edge, and kept us on the edge. It takes people who are free to use their imaginations, like novelists, humorists, actors and actresses, inventors, artists, dancers, and those in other creative areas.
