Why Creativity Matters

Routine tasks are increasingly becoming undertaken by robots. In the future, it is likely that only those associated with creative thought have a certain future, a niche that (at least at present) is the preserve of people. This alone gives urgency to the fostering of imaginative thought across the disciplines, and that includes chemistry. This final chapter highlights the themes consider in the book with a discussion as to why creativity matters for the individual and society as a whole.
