• "It becomes increasingly obvious that all innovation can be included under the canopy of Imagination. Although science and the arts have often seemed to be distinct and even opposed to each other, we now understand they come from the same source. Together they speak to an inter-connective-ness in life which in this age of profoundly rich new knowledge is being shown – as we see in this book – to be a unifying characteristic of the way we are. It is a timely and compelling history of the springs of thought."
