Innovateurs surhumains: comment l’expérimentation et la lutte alimentent les nouvelles idées | David Epstein #Créativité #Innovation #Idée

Why Django Reinhardt might just be the greatest musical innovator you’ve never heard of. – David Epstein recounts the incredible life of 20th-century Roma guitarist Django Reinhardt, who couldn’t read or write and who suffered a horrific accident that made two of his fret fingers useless. – Reinhardt didn’t stop playing, instead he invented a new style that revolutionized the music scene and gave birth to the modern guitar solo, inspiring artists like Jimi Hendrix. – Anyone can innovate, says Epstein, it is in no way dependent on a formal education. In fact, our creative work may fare better if we learn like babies do: through trial, error, and struggle. David Epstein is the author of the New York Times bestsellers Range: Why Generalist Triumph in a Specialized World (https://amzn.to/2xzQJ90) and The Sports Gene. He has master’s degrees in environmental science and journalism and has worked as an investigative reporter for ProPublica and a senior writer for Sports Illustrated. He lives in Washington, DC.
