Simon Kyaga - Origins of Creativity

Simon Kyaga

Karolinska Institute

From The Conference August 23, 2012

Simon Kyaga is an attending physician in psychiatry and researcher at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm that has studied the relation between genius and madness.

Many things have been said about where ideas come from. Pablo Picasso said that ”the chief enemy of creativity is good sense” and Tomas Edison insisted that ”genius is 1% talent and 99% perspiration”. Seems that being a bit crazy and working hard is the way forward. This session will explore factors for being creative.
