Freeing design education from methods and doctrines
As methods and theories precede the process a cognitive reversal happens and reasoning becomes the way to comprehend and apply what is known. Then intuition becomes a mere tool in the hands of reason. Creativity becomes bounded with in the frame work of the prescribed. But if we let the method evolve naturally a totally new possibility is awoken. This shift will immediately put us in to the realm of unknown thus paving way for creativity and spontaneity.
Design Process is in reality recovering our ability to LEARN
As we are accustomed to dealing with ready made, second hand knowledge a cognitive rewiring takes place and reason is established as the tool for cognition. No wonder there is no creativity in modern schooling. Talk about creativity is pointless as the creator has been removed from the cognitive
act. But mental tricks are misunderstood as creativity. This is where the De Bonos thrive- lateral thinking and all that stuff.
