After we have accomplished the arduous task of finishing the age of reason, I hand students a starburst fruit chew. Then I ask them to write down the logical thing to do with it. Then I ask them to write creative things to do with it. We share entries and every year, somebody comes up with something even more creative. Of course, the logical thing to do with the Starburst is to eat it. Using this analogy, I discuss the differences between the Age of Reason and Logic and the Romantic more creative period.
