Re: So how about creativity in 2017? (11/01/17 11:09:32)
Because creativity always creates risks or losses to the establishment, the establishment keeps it under tight control. We have seen it in history, and we see it now, with all the time tighter controls with the universities. Who gets the money in public universities? It's the state-and-bureaucracy-approved institutions with their peer-reviewed projects.
And then: Where can a person be valuably creative? The easy answer is: At the border or one's competence. Inside of established fields one can be almost certain that someone has done it before.
I have seen professors reading textbooks for ideas. Need I say more?
