Very interesting read. I’m currently reading, The Obstacle is the Way, by Ryan Holiday. I just began it actually, when I came across a line that stood out to me. To paraphrase, Holiday suggests that creativity could be a virtue. I found this fascinating.
Then I spotted your article and thought I’d see what ideas could come from the two thoughts. Turns out quite a few.
If virtue is a character train then it makes sense that creativity could be a virtue… But if that trait is for survival and personal development, then does it become consequence based? Definitely a gray area.
Very in depth and insightful read.
