Overview

In this unique attempt to address the dilemma in contemporary education, the noted cognitive scientist weaves the lessons garnered from three vantage points—his own traditional education as an American child, his years of research on creativity at Harvard, and what he saw in modern Chinese classrooms—into a program for creativity that draws on the best of both modes, traditional and progressive.
