The Merits of Messiness

Fri 18 November 2016,

Tim Harford – author of The Undercover Economist and now Messy: How to be Creative and Resilient in a Tidy-Minded World – explores the benefits that messiness has in our lives: why it’s important, why we resist it, and why we should embrace it instead.

Using research from neuroscience, psychology, and social science, he explains that the human qualities we value – creativity, responsiveness, resilience – are integral to the disorder, confusion, and disarray that produce them. Messiness lies at the core of how we innovate, how we achieve, how we reach each other – in short, how we succeed.
