Conversations on Creativity with Repeat Bloomer Joshua Waitzkin

by Scott Barry Kaufman, November 27, 2008

Remember Joshua Waitzkin, whose early chess successes were depicted in the 1993 Paramount film Searching for Bobby Fischer? What has he been up to since then? How did the movie affect his life? What was the impact of being labelled a “child prodigy”? What are his thoughts on creativity and the learning process? I recently had a conversation with Waitzkin where we discussed these questions and more. I found his answers provocative and illuminating.
