The Value of Idling - Verity Sharp meets Josh Cohen
How does idling encourage creativity and release us from the treadmill of work? Verity Sharp meets psychoanalyst and idler Josh Cohen.
Could idling help free us from the treadmill of work and increase our creativity? Is boredom conducive to creativity? In the first of two programmes we hear from psychoanalyst, Professor of Modern Literary Theory at Goldsmiths University of London, author and practising idler Josh Cohen. He talks to Verity Sharp about the value of idling, how a much more relaxed attitude to life is not a hindrance but can encourage creativity and why being bored can be positive! Producer Sarah Blunt
