Chris Fields brings the worlds of science and art together through the surprising thing they share and depend on: intuition. Quoting recent research into the effects on the brain of the creative process in both worlds, he describes the fascinating fact that in both cases what is essential is a positive outlook and indifference to personal reward. They are both very impersonal activities. Both scientists and artists care less about what others think of their work. Their freedom is in their curiosity. “The real goal of intuition,” he says, “is to violate intuition.”
