Higher Creativity

Liberating the Unconscious for Breakthrough Insights

by Willis W. Harman, PhD and Howard Rheingold

Insight is the mind's magic in action, solving problems, understanding relationships, creating new images--with a speed and certainty unavailable to ordinary consciousness. Breakthrough insights go even further. They take a quantum leap beyond ordinary creativity and our previous ways of looking at things to a whole new method of resolving our difficulties. Almost all of us have experienced such moments in relation to work-oriented or personal problems and wish we could have them more often. In fact, we can.

In Higher Creativity, the authors argue persuasively for an enlarged image of everyone's creative potential. They examine the secret history of inspiration through contemporary and historical accounts of profound creative breakthroughs, and finally they describe a surprisingly simple and reproducible sequence that has often triggered these insights for outstanding innovators in business, science, and the arts.
