When Foolish is Wise

Creativity consultant Roger von Oech on the wisdom of thinking like a fool. An excerpt:

It's the fool's job to extol the trivial, trifle with the exalted, and parody the common perception of a situation. In doing so, the fool makes us conscious of the habits we take for granted and rarely question. A good fool needs to be part actor and part poet, part philosopher and part psychologist.
