Creative Disturbance
Arts Activities of Successful Scientists

Robert Root-Bernstein discusses (with astronomer and editor Roger Malina) how successful scientist and engineers (Nobel Prize winners, Academy members) partake in arts avocations as part of their creative research practice. His studies find that successful scientists and engineers engage in the arts far more than less successful ones. He also describes the habits of creative people as detailed in his book, Sparks of Genius.
