As I brought up at the Annual Meeting, I am semi-interested in assembling a book on the creative process by examining the ways we have found the basic tenets of Lichtenbergianism to be useful in our various attempts. The discussions we have about each of these terms—and any we add to the list—will be the basis of the book.
My intention is to write a brief explanation and introduction of each of the tenets. You can then argue the points as you see fit, and provide instances of the tenet in action.
The nine tenets, as presented at the Lichtenbergianism seminar on the GHP campus in 2013, are:
- task avoidance
- abortive attempts
- successive approximation
- waste books
- steal from the best
Let the wild rumpus start!
