Freedom and Other Keys to Creativity



There is a lot of buzz on creativity and there are many ways to look at it but, in this book, you will not find a methodology for “unlocking your inner creative soul.” Instead, you will be immersed in a thought-provoking dive into neuroscience, philosophy, psychology, and a variety of references from arts and sciences. Creativity takes courage (and it also takes time): one must take the existential approach of becoming (a meaningful engagement with life). Enjoy creativity as a process, not as a tool to conquer a goal.

"Most people read one or two books on creativity in a lifetime, Joaquim Franch has probably read them all! In this book, he has broken them down, sorted out the common denominators, and put them in order to produce a book that is both thought proving and practical. An essential read for anyone interested in creativity".

Ian Gibbs, with a degree in astrophysics and a postgrad in education, is an entrepreneur working as a learning-strategies specialist. Author of The Sorites Principle and the 2022 TEDx Talk, The Secret Key to Learning Hidden in Plain Sight.

"I consider it of great value that the author has made use of creative parameters to address its nature. The result is a useful and original book that undoubtedly helps to take a step further in understanding creativity".

Matilde Obradors, Professor in the Department of Communication at the Pompeu Fabra University (Barcelona). Author of Creatividad y generación de ideas.

"My friend Joaquim is a true generalist (and a systems thinker) and, not surprisingly, with this work he has achieved a balanced vision of a widely studied subject in the Anglo-American world. It’s an honest intellectual analysis of diverse sources".

Pere Marés, former Professor in the Automatic Control Department at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (Barcelona).
