This volume combines ideas from the modern disciplines of cognitive science and artificial intelligence with recent research by psychologists, engineers and other scholars, to construct the beginnings of what Dasgupta calls a "theory of technological creativity". The creative, intellectual, cognitive aspect of technology is the focus of this book. The book should be of interest to engineers, cognitive and other scientists, and anyone with an interest in creativity.

Review:

"An exciting exploration of linkages between technology and creativity, an exploration that is alternately punctuated by deep insights and broad visions."--Robert J. Weber, School of Law, University of New Mexico, author of Forks, Phonographs, and Hot Air Balloons and editor of Inventive Minds: Creativity in Technology. "From case studies in mechanical, civil, aeronautical, and electronic engineering, beginning with the primitive atmospheric steam engine of 1712, Professor Dasgupta has traced the key personal--as opposed to economic and social--factors in invention. His book is as readable as it is authoritative."--Donald Cardwell, History of Science & Technology Group, Department of Physics, UMIST "An exciting exploration of linkages between technology and creativity, an exploration that is alternately punctuated by deep insights and broad visions."--Robert J.
