    The Trouble with Out-of-the-Box Thinking

    By Andrew Hargadon on continuity and its critical role in the innovation



    [In the context of this article, members of Humanist would likely enjoy
    reading Thomas Kuhn's remarks on the interaction of the innovative and the
    traditional, in "The Essential Tension: Tradition and Innovation in
    Scientific Research?" in the collection of essays called The Essential
    Tension (Chicago, 1977): 225-39. Roughly his argument is that they need
    each other. As I may have written before, these essays are wonderful --
    read them tonight! --WM]
