Four Stages of Eureka!

Sudden Genius by Andrew Robinson explores Henri Poincaré’s four-stage model of sudden Eureka moments in creativity:

  1. conscious thought
  2. incubation
  3. illumination
  4. verification

Robinson goes on to dismiss this theory, but the good folks at New Scientist believe it’s still the best model we’ve got.
