Linking Creativity and Anxiety

     

It turns out that creativity shapes our world in lots of different educational disciplines and an article from visionlearning.org answers this question. So how do scientists come up with specific questions to study? You might be surprised to hear that the process involves large doses of creativity. A Nobel Prize-winning biologist, Peter Medawar, once referred to scientific research as "the art of the soluble" (Medawar, 1984, p. 254). Medawar did not mean that science is about things that dissolve – he meant that being successful in science is about figuring out which questions are solvable through scientific investigation, and then figuring out the solutions to those questions.
