What is an idea?

This week I have begun creating a series of videos to share my teaching on how to have ideas. The videos start with what simple question, what is an idea. The definition I use, provided by James Webb Young in his 1965 book ‘A Technique for Producing Ideas’ is pragmatic – it gives us tangible ways to work on improving our creative thinking.

This blog is full of posts about creative thinking and idea generation. For a good overview check out ‘How to have ideas – guidance for engineers and other humans’ – below.
