Gary Peters is chair of critical and cultural theory at York St John University and the author of Irony and Singularity: Aesthetic Education from Kant to Levinas.
"This is an unusual book on improvisation: a genuinely philosophical contribution to the literature.... It's impossible to summarize the book's many ingenious arguments in the space of a short review - this is a rich and intriguing discussion." (Wire) "This aptly titled work considers not the how-to of improvisation but rather the motivations and meaning behind spontaneous creation.... A work for anyone who teaches or wishes to reflect on the creative process." (Choice)"
