Intelligence:
The Creative Response to Now
by Osho Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh

In Intelligence: The Creative Response to Now, one of the twentieth century’s greatest spiritual teachers reveals a different approach to thinking about our brainpower.

In Intelligence, Osho challenges the common conception that the best way to promote intelligence is to train the intellect. Intellect is logical, he says; intelligence is paradoxical. Intellect takes things apart to see how they work; intelligence puts things together to see the functioning of the whole. Osho posits that when our education systems put too much emphasis on developing intellect, an imbalance is created and both the individual and the society suffer. It is only through intelligence that we can respond creatively to the challenges of a changing world.

By exploring the distinction between intellect and intelligence, Intelligence encourages readers to be more aware of how they approach problems―logical, emotional, and practical―and how they solve them.

Osho challenges readers to examine and break free of the conditioned belief systems and prejudices that limit their capacity to enjoy life in all its richness. He has been described by the Sunday Times of London as one of the “1000 Makers of the 20th Century” and by Sunday Mid-Day (India) as one of the ten people―along with Gandhi, Nehru, and Buddha―who have changed the destiny of India. Since his death in 1990, the influence of his teachings continues to expand, reaching seekers of all ages in virtually every country of the world.
