Saturday Conversations

TOPIC:

Creativity

Artists, philosophers, craftspeople, and in reality every human has creative potential. In fact, it could be said that humans have a rather unique creative capacity that cannot be found elsewhere in the animal kingdom nor engineered into machines. But this raises a lot of very interesting questions about both creativity and what it means to be human within the context of being a creative animal.


Questions:

1. What is creativity? What kinds of behaviors, or processes do we generally associate with creativity?

2. Is creativity rational or irrational?

3. Does creativity do best with or without a goal to reach for?

4. It is often taking for granted that creativity is a positive attribute, but in the light of the often troubled lives of incredibly creative people, is that necessarily the case? Are these problems caused by creativity, stem from a common cause from which creativity also flows, or are they merely related to the society we currently find ourselves in?

5. With that in mind, what does it mean to be a creative person?

6. What can we do to foster positive creativity in our daily lives?


Location and Price:

Upstairs there are many tables and chairs where people can gather and eat. If it's a nice day out, we may sit out on the covered balcony. As always there is a suggested, but by no means necessary, $2 donation which goes towards helping cover the costs of the meetup.
