TOTB (“Thinking Outside The Box”) No. 1Posted: May 13, 2014 Filed under: TOTB Leave a comment
Welcome to the first edition of Thinking Outside the Box (“TOTB”), pronounced “Tot-B” for short! TOTB will be devoted to examples of people who have found a new way of thinking about something old, often by reframing the issue or asking a different question. The capacity to look at old things in a new way, to reframe issues, to ask new and interesting questions about old and seemingly settled matters, to challenge settled assumptions, is, I think, what distinguishes great creative thinkers (e.g, Newton, Einstein, etc.) from us mere mortal folk.
