The Short History of the (Mostly Western) Concept of Creativity

Monday, December 10th from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM

A Discussion with Yale School of Management Senior Faculty Fellow Dick Foster


The word "creativity" entered Webster's in 1875, much more recently than many suspect.  Why did the world wait so long for this central concept to emerge?  Why did it emerge then and not some other time and some other place?  Come join Yale School of Management's Dick Foster and other Yale alums as he discusses these and other questions about the evolution of one of today's most important concepts: creativity.


Dick Foster is a Senior Faculty Fellow at Yale School of Management, a venture partner at Lux Capital, a general partner at Mansa Capital, and an emeritus director of McKinsey & Company, Inc. At McKinsey, Mr. Foster was a director and senior partner and founded several practices including the technology and innovation practice, the healthcare practice and the private equity practice. He is the author of two best-selling books: Innovation: The Attacker’s Advantage and Creative Destruction. Mr. Foster received his BS, MS, and PhD from Yale University in Engineering and Applied Science.
