oct 1, 2014 – Jerome Bruner – 99 yrs old

via Maria:

http://www.brainpickings.org/2014/06/13/jerome-bruner-myth-identity-creativity/

Today, we hang so much of our identity on our capacity to create, often confusing what we do for who we are. And while creativity, by and large, is a positive force in the external world, its blind pursuit can be damaging to the inner.

most people are other people. trumping authenticity for attachment.

perhaps why ie: th experiment and this mit & twitter – and even maker ness – won’t get us there – until we free people up to be themselves. twitter data is irrelevant – if it’s not really us. no? how to make it not an imitation. every day.

It is hard for us to accept that people do not fall in love with works of art only for their own sake, but also in order to feel that they belong to a community. By imitating, we get closer to others—that is, other imitators. It fights solitude.  – Taleb
