What are the seven key concepts that drove Da Vinci's inventive thinking and how can we still use them to improve our own creativity, 500 years after his death? In pursuit of the unified learning principles that sit at the heart of his work, Ian Warwick and Ray Speakman brilliantly explore the approaches that we need to take to make our own learning more original and thoughtful.

Details

Five hundred years ago, Leonardo da Vinci immersed himself in every specialised discipline and direction that he could find, often all at once. He was addicted to and driven by what he didn’t know, prying into everything, committed to unravelling the mysteries and urgencies that surrounded him.

What are the seven key concepts that drove his inventive thinking and how can we still use them to improve our own creativity, half a millennium after his death? How did this man earn his genius across so many disciplines and achieve a genuinely universal mind? What approaches do we need to take that will make our own learning more original and thoughtful?

In pursuit of the unified learning principles that sit at the heart of his work, this book will explore what Leonardo still has to offer our modern world, tracing the echoes of his thinking across the centuries.

Review

Leonardo's notebooks, those astonishing collections of eclectic wisdom, play a big part in this book and the experience of reading Unfinished Perfection even chimes with that -- fascinating ideas from a huge range of authors and fields of human endeavour are beautifully brought together with the authors own insights to stimulate thought about how we should think and how we should educate. I recommend it highly. --Professor Sir Jonathan Bate
