Although creativity, from Plato onwards, has been recognized as a topic in philosophy, it has been overshadowed by investigations of the meanings and values of works of art. In this collection of essays a distinguished roster of philosophers of art redress this trend. The subjects discussed include the nature of creativity and the process of artistic creation; the role that creative making should play in our understanding and evaluation of art; relations between concepts of creation and creativity; and ideas of tradition, metaphor, genius, imagination and genre. This is an important collection that will be eagerly sought by philosophers of art as well as theorists in art history, cinema studies and literary criticism.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... an important contribution to current research in the philosophy of art. It fills a large and regrettable gap.' Dominic Lopes, University of British Columbia
'There is plenty here to help us begin to understand what it was we acquired fifty thousand years ago. That is to say, this book will not answer all your questions about creativity, and that is its virtue.' The Philosophical Quarterly
