Creativity: Research, Development, and Practice, Third Edition, summarizes research on creativity from psychology, business, education, sociology, economics, and more, investigating its development, expression and enhancement. Beginning with a discussion of theories, the book progresses to research on the nature/nurture debate, 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.
The third edition has been thoroughly updated, with a new chapter on psychometrics, substantial updates on the biology of creativity, and on associative/intuitive cognition.
In addition, it includes quotes, figures, boxed controversial issues, and biographies of creative individuals.
