Steven Pinker is an experimental psychologist and cognitive scientist currently teaching psychology at Harvard University. In this contemplative Steven Pinker speech, the respected scientist examines the need for an easily accessible universe of ideas in order for one to draw on it for inspiration in a process of synthesizing innovation.
Pinker argues that in order for one to be capable of creating original ideas, one must experience exposure to as many ideas as possible, both within and outside of their chosen area of work, as he says inspiring ideas can come from anywhere. Providing specific examples from his own career in psychology, Pinker discusses how he has repurposed ideas from other fields and disciplines into his work.
