課程概述

Today "genius" is all around us. Celebrities, athletes, child prodigies, even your local Apple employees, all are referred to as geniuses. But are they? And if not these individuals then who? In this course, Henry L. and Lucy G. Moses Professor of Music Emeritus and author of The Hidden Habits of Genius, Craig Wright, will begin by giving you his definition and prerequisites for true genius and challenge you to come up with your own. From there we'll look at examples of geniuses both historical and modern to try to identify the threads that bind them together and understand what separates the true genius from the wannabe... We’ll explore where creativity, curiosity and passion originate and how geniuses are able to discover, cultivate and apply their prodigious stores of each so as to fashion world changing ideas and inventions. Specific topics covered in the course include: Genius and Gender Genius and Money Whether or not celebrities and athletes can be considered geniuses Where and when genius happen The morality of genius Genius and inequality And dozens more While this course almost assuredly will not turn anyone into a genius, we hope it will serve to inspire you to cultivate your own creativity, explore your own curiosity, and pursue your own passion....

An amazingly eye opening class that I will gladly recommend anyone should take. For our universe to function the best way it was designed, there must be synergy between human and economic capital.

I especially loved the very last part, and the way it tied to the earlier guest lecture by Dr. Jennings on how we need genius to fix things. Such a simple idea but so true.

It is a wonderful course! I thought I would learn some music history and some musicians or other genius' name in this class. However, it offers viewpoints and knowledge beyond history. It evoked lots of ideas and thoughts about the definition of genius, the features of genius, the relationship between genius and money and morality, and finally, the grand vision of cultivating genius.

The best thing of this course to offer is the stimulation of your intelligence.

the second best thing is to learn from the perspective of genius and maybe help us move forward our studies and career.

Thank you for the information and insights Dr Wright. Such a well put together course !

Now that I know that the nature of genius has no cookie cutter answer makes me admire genius even more. How were they so far seeing ? How did they do so much with what they had ?

As a mother and sometimes as a teacher, I have to then say that "perfect storm" could happen in anyones life and that one should "pamper ones own passion". Wonder if you agree !

Thanks once again.

Engaging information, well researched, eloquestly shared by professor Wright, good pace and testing system. There were some discrepancies between the course material and corect answers in tests. After a few faulty ones, I stopped clicking the wrong answer judt for receiving 100% on exams. They are many of them ~ 10, I might say. Thank you for the opportunity. I'll surely enter my creative space next time with a slighly different perspective and expectation.

I found this course fascinating. The ideas put forward were interesting and thought provoking. Cannot get on board with the idea of Kanye West as a genius but otherwise found the propositions put forward by Professor Wright to be interesting and definitely gave me food for thought. It also added a few books to my list and has given me a few people to go away and read more about.

Thanks for an entertaining and informative course.

Professor Wright is an excellent instructor and I highly recommend both of his Coursera courses. In each case he presents material that has been developed for many years at Yale and it is clear that both topics are very dear to his heart. Also it is obvious that he loves teaching and believes in the MOOC concept.

I have found Dr. Wright's teaching style in both this and his introduction to classical music course to be well organized, insightful, intellectually challenging, and most of all, fun! Thank you for your work - I have learned a lot from you.

Unbelievable courses and a delicate arrangement of content solved my questions for years.

Maybe 'To genius, or not to genius, that is the question.'
