Many individuals today have become quite interested in the phenomena of creativity – creative scientists, creative artists, persons who exhibit creativity in finance, advertising, or even the political sphere. As one who monitors the area of creativity, I note as well the accumulation of books, articles, television programs, workshops, and other symptoms of growing interest in the topic. Yet, despite this almost prurient curiosity about the topic, most of us have not had the opportunity to observe a highly creative individual first hand. We read about Freud or Einstein, we watch films of Woody Allen or Martha Graham, and we listen assiduously to interviews with Francis Crick or Barbara McClintock. From these scattered hints, we try to understand the intriguing phenomenon of a single individual who changes the way in which others think about or experience the world.
