Thinking Arfully

A speech by Dr. Bob Deutsch of Brain Sells at the GPRS Conference, Porto Alegre, Brazil, April 2017.

“In order to successfully approach and address the speed and complexity of today’s world, famous singer-songwriters, musicians, film directors, actors, novelists, poets, choreographers and chefs were interviewed and observed to understand their mental outlook and assumptions about life, that give rise to new offerings. Preeminent among their cognitive abilities were metaphor-making and integrating paradoxes, all the time informed by their own self-story and felt sensuality. Although sometimes tasks are difficult, artists have fun doing what they do and fun feeds their vitality, so necessary for authentic, creative work.”
