          Over the next several weeks I will posting a series of essays that raise essential questions for the way we shape our world. Aeon Essays, like Brain Pickings, is one of my favorite resources for thinking about the difficult questions we have been avoiding for too long. While the title of the essay poses a dichotomy, the full work does not. It is the narrowness of our current views of innovation that make it such a problem. I hope you will read this important piece several times; argue with it where you will, but take to heart its essential lessons.
