Creativity: Theory, History, Practice offers important new perspectives on creativity in the light of contemporary critical theory and cultural history. Innovative in approach as well as argument, the book crosses disciplinary boundaries and builds new bridges between the critical and the creative. It is organised in four parts:

  • Why creativity now? offers much-needed alternatives to both the Romantic stereotype of the creator as individual genius and the tendency of the modern creative industries to treat everything as a commodity
  • defining creativity, creating definitions traces the changing meaning of 'create' from religious ideas of divine creation from nothing to advertising notions of concept creation. It also examines the complex history and extraordinary versatility of terms such as imagination, invention, inspiration and originality
  • dreation as myth, story, metaphor begins with modern re-tellings of early African, American and Australian creation myths and – picking up Biblical and evolutionary accounts along the way – works round to scientific visions of the Big Bang, bubble universes and cosmic soup
  • creative practices, cultural processes is a critical anthology of materials, chosen to promote fresh thinking about everything from changing constructions of 'literature' and 'design' to artificial intelligence and genetic engineering.

Rob Pope takes significant steps forward in the process of rethinking a vexed yet vital concept, all the while encouraging and equipping readers to continue the process in their own creative or 're-creative' ways. Creativity: Theory, History, Practice is invaluable for anyone with a live interest in exploring what creativity has been, is currently, and yet may be.

About the Author:

Rob Pope is Professor of English Studies at Oxford Brookes University. His previous books include Textual Intervention: Critical and Creative Strategies for Literary Studies (Routledge 1995) and The English Studies Book (Routledge 1998).

Review:

'This varied and provocative book takes a multi-lensed instrument to the many historical and theoretical facets of creativity. Pope's scope is immense, his method discursive.' – Writing in Education

'For an author to achieve the rigour and practical applicability of a text-book as well as the academic and depth-informed qualities of a monograph, while creating at the same time ample room for discursive and associative play, is no mean feat - but this is Pope's ongoing signature and  para phase' – Writing in Education

'This is a valuable book that ought to be read by anyone in the humanities working on notions of the creative ... The book will provide valuable service to numerous readers as an intellectual workout on the diversity of its field.' –British Association for Romantic Studies
