"The contributors' thoughts about the importance of a disciplinary framework as a necessary foundation for building greater creative and intuitive insight are so true. Their examples of the artist’s performance as being an 'interplay between the intuitive and the conscious' are wonderful. I also appreciated the discussions on the importance of collegial work and empathy."
"The book is rich in ideas and scholarship. Its diversity of perspectives is also a strength."
"Especially in today's 'teach-to-the-test' climate, do we ever need a book on the subject of wisdom and creativity! This is a relatively rare and essential title. Our focus as educators (and citizens) would be enriched by such a book."
"The book focuses on very significant issues of our time. It teaches us lessons about ourselves as a society and a culture that we need to heed. The ideas presented are well corroborated by work in widely different fields of scholarship, giving them solid credibility."
"The book reveals some superb thinking about complex ideas. It offers the valuable tension of differing perspectives, and its contributions successfully and elegantly bridge the chasm between theory and practice."
"An important topic. A book like this provides fodder for dialogue and articulation that is much needed in higher education."
"Rich, varied, and highly stimulating. This book breaks new ground by identifying the opportunities and conflicts in our desire to encourage multiple virtues through education. It will nourish educational practice and encourage fresh public debate."
"Creativity, wisdom, and trusteeship may each sound good enough in itself, but the multiple contributors to this volume make a compelling case for how much they need one another. Wise creativity is one of the aspirations, a quality distinctly at odds with the culture-free and economically aggressive conceptions of creativity that figure in educational and corporate agendas these days."
“Creativity, that marvelous catch-all phrase with which we are now all imbued, is a concept that is both complex and simple...a vital life force. This book is important because its fundamental proposition is that creativity and being are one and the same. Read it.”
Wonderful, absolutely in line with my dissertation
