Book Description:

A much needed reference on creativity for psychologists

From the Back Cover:

Each of the major theoretical perspectives (behavioral, clinical, cognitive, developmental, economic, educational, evolutionary, historical, social, organizational) on creativity is reviewed in this volume. The more important key topics and issues, including those concerning age, sex, and cultural differences, and those dealing with the mad genius and health issues, are also covered. One chapter focuses on enhancement issues, and the last chapter defines creativity and explores how creativity is related to, but distinct from, other important human capacities and behaviors, including invention, innovation, imagination, and adaptability.

This is primarily a textbook. It may, however, also be useful to researchers and practitioners, given the emphasis on scholarly, scientific, and objective research and the theories that are constructed from it. All of the important scholarship on creativity is covered in this volume.
