Animal Creativity and Innovation (Explorations in Creativity Research)

9780128006481: Animal Creativity and Innovation (Explorations in Creativity Research)

Animal Creativity and Innovation explores theories and research on animal innovation and creativity, comparing and contrasting it with theory and research on human creativity and innovation.  In doing so, it encompasses findings from psychology, biology, neuroscience, engineering, business, ecology, and education.  The book includes examples of animal innovation in parrots, dogs, marine mammals, insects, and primates, exploring parallels from creative play in children.  The book defines creativity, differentiating it from play, and looks at evolutionary models and neurological constructs.  The book further explores applied aspects of animal innovation and creativity including tool use and group dynamics, as well as barriers to creativity.  The final chapters look into how creative behavior may be taught or trained.  Each chapter is followed by a commentary for integration of thoughts and ideas between animal and human research, behavioral and cognitive research, and theory and observation in real life.

  • Compares theory and research on animal and human creativity
  • Defines and differentiates creativity from play
  • Reviews applied creativity in tool use and social dynamics
  • Includes examples of animal creativity in multiple species

Product Description:

Animal Creativity and Innovation is a comprehensive overview of the research and findings associated with animal creativity, including work from both psychologists and animal behaviorists.

Readers will gain a solid understanding of how evolutionary changes have created advantages for humans in relation to problem-solving, how they are able to utilize tools effectively, and the ways in which humans engage successfully in social interaction.

In addition, the book delves into a discussion on how animals display creative tendencies similar to those of humans. Chapters include both discussion and analysis of what research may mean in relation to human creativity.

  • Summarizes creativity research relating to animals
  • Encompasses tool use, social interaction, and innovation in animals
  • Covers neurobiology of cognition, while also discussing how animal creativity relates to human creativity
  • Includes informative research from animal behaviorists and psychologists
