The Poetry and Music of Science (2019)

Professor Tom McLeish, FRS
The Poetry and Music of Science: Comparing Creativity in Science and Art

What human qualities are needed to make scientific discoveries, and which to make great art? Many would point to ‘imagination’ and ‘creativity’ in the second case but not the first. This book challenges the assumption that doing science is in any sense less creative than art, music or fictional writing and poetry, and treads a historical and contemporary path through common territories of the creative process.
