Something interesting I found on Scientific Discovery

  1. Sep 19, 2009 #1
    Many think the topic of how people make scientific discoveries is interesting. Scientists have flashes of insight, see things in different ways, etc.

    We've all heard about how the U.S. did things to up their advantage during the Cold War. During those tensions, the U.S. put in some funding to study how scientific creativity (creative discovery) is used to make breakthroughs. We've heard how the Soviets had their own advances with sports plyometrics used to show off in the Olympics, and other stuff, while the U.S. made their own advances/studies (including some put towards scientific creativity).

    I found this online Google book, Encyclopedia of Creativity. Here's a chapter on Science some in here may find interesting. Maybe it's even applicable to the individual also? :wink:
