It is It is ronic that the act of passing on prior inventions and discoveries, or acquired knowledge, seems to diminish the inclination to think creatively. Clearly, the mind is empowered by

acquiring the experiences and knowledge accumulated by our predecessors;
however, it also can be powerfully constrained by the way in which knowledge is
transmitted. In point of fact, there appears to be a host of subtle but
pervasive factors woven through the fabric of traditional schooling that tend
actually to discourage the type of critical analysis--the thoughtful
articulation and decomposition of a problem--that leads to constructive
thinking. I take constructive thinking to be the composition and assembly of
possible solutions, including some that may need to be invented. Constructive
thinking, then, includes both "critical" and "creative"
intellectual processes.
