50 Year Truth - Aldous Huxley

AldousHuxley interviewed by ParisReview in 1960 had some thoughts on education and creativity that hold true still today.


INTERVIEWER
What about creativeness in general?
HUXLEY
Yes, what about it? Why is it that in most children education seems to destroy the creative urge? Why do so many boys and girls leave school with blunted perceptions and a closed mind? A majority of young people seem to develop mental arteriosclerosis forty years before they get the physical kind. Another question: why do some people remain open and elastic into extreme old age, whereas others become rigid and unproductive before they’re fifty? It’s a problem in biochemistry and adult education.

Are you starting the journey with us and CoOrpheum to make AldousHuxley's dream become true? We are ready.
