The Agile Mind

Wilma Koutstaal, PhD

  • Develops a new integrative framework for conceptualizing mental agility
  • Provides a broad interdisciplinary account of innovation and flexible thinking that overarches narrower, more limited, constructs such as creativity, executive control, or resilience
  • Incorporates findings from often disconnected research literatures, and uniquely takes account of the burgeoning literature on the pervasive importance of levels of representational specificity in thinking
  • Offers science-based approaches to promote adaptively creative thinking across the lifespan
