By its very nature, this book is a text for the kind of learning, and the student attitudes, such as openness to experience, that typify creative problem solving and help to frame it holistically within learners’ lives, extending beyond the walls of the classroom. As discussed in the book, even learners who follow a single creativity-spurring approach deliberately can find mystery in their own work, for metaphors possess codes that require reflection and interpretation to be understood fully by observers and creators. Appreciating the depth of meaning available to learners as comparisons are made, as analogies and metaphors are drawn, requires the participants to reflect upon emotion and belief, attitudes and desires, fears and joys. This elemental approach to exploring creativity honors the work of the student and invites vulnerability, process, and product to take part in the alchemy of life and idea—purpose antithetical to the negative aspects of perfectionism. Without the guiding philosophy espoused in this text, a creative pursuit like the one in this study would not be possible. Readers finding themselves nodding as they explore this gem would do well to select its spiritual partner, also written by Dr. Jane Piirto, "My teeming brain": Understanding creative writers.
