Combining Opposites—Diverge, Then Converge

Lecture no. 4 from the course: The Creative Thinker's Toolkit

Combining Opposites—Diverge, Then Converge

Taught by Professor Gerard Puccio | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Professional Development Courses

Focus now on the nature of creative thinking itself, with a look at divergent thinking (which involves intuition and associative thought) and convergent thinking (which selects and develops the most promising ideas). Along the way, you’ll learn skills for balancing these surprisingly complementary ways of thinking in your own life.
