Steven Spielberg's Talk About Intuition Discusses Creating the Future

By: Alyson Wyers - May 29, 2016
In his talk about intuition, Steven Spielberg gives advice to Harvard's graduating class. The commencement address explains how creating the future is about looking to the past. The renowned filmmaker encourages the audience to consult their intuition, which tells you what you could do, and their conscience, which says what you should do, in order to refine their character.

The talk about intuition states to understand who you are, you have to study history and understand where the world used to be. This means telling our stories and listening to stories from previous generations. This is especially true when combatting hatred with curiosity, empathy and humanity. Referencing the service of people long gone, the speaker asks the new graduates to stay connected with each other and never lose eye contact.
