Summary
"Summarizing scholarly research on creativity, Creativity: Theories and Themes draws together a sprawling literature from psychology, business, education, sociology, economics, and more. The book investigates what research findings indicate with regard to development, expression, and enhancement of creativity. Beginning with a discussion of theories of creativity, the book progresses to research on the nature/nurture debate as to what influences creativity, how creativity is related to personality, how social context may affect creativity, mental health and its relation to creativity, gender differences, and how creativity is related to and differs from invention, innovation, imagination, and adaptability." "Intended as the first textbook on creativity, it will also serve as a comprehensive source to creativity research for scholars and libraries."--BOOK JACKET
