Show Summary Details


This chapter focuses on the aesthetics of social change. It argues that the aesthetics of social change proposes a simple idea: building adaptive and responsive processes requires a creative act, which at its core is more art than technique. The creative act brings about processes that have not existed before. To sustain themselves over time, processes of change require constant innovation.

Keywords: social change; innovation; creative act; aesthetics
