Isaac Asimov asks, “how do people get new ideas?”
The sci-fi giant on the creative process. Isaac Asimov's concepts became reality and made him one of the greatest science writers of a generation. A recently rediscovered essay by him still contains some pertinent points on the creative process, the nature of creative people and the kind of environment that promotes creativity. This piece also contains a note from the American entrepreneur and philanthropist Arthur Obermayer, a close friend of the author, who found this text.
