Abstract / Description

The current collection gathers the perspectives of academics and creative practitioners to discuss the role of serendipity in domains as varied as creative problem solving, sculpture, writing, theatre and design. The chapters in this volume address issues such as the nature of the prepared mind, the role of accidents, serendipity as a skill or way of engaging with the world, and indeed, whether serendipity as a concept is even possible within the coupled, dynamic system which so often marks creative engagement with the world.
