This book provides an overview of the approaches of leading scholars to understanding the nature of creativity, its measurement, its investigation, its development, and its importance to society. The authors are the twenty-four psychological scientists who are most frequently cited in the four major textbooks on creativity, and they can thus be considered among the most eminent living scholars in the field. Authors discuss how they define creativity, the kinds of questions they have addressed, theories they have proposed, and a description of their research and the most interesting empirical results it has produced. The chapters represent a wide range of substantive and methodological emphases, including psychometric, cognitive, expertise-based, developmental, neuropsychological, cultural, systems, and group-difference approaches. The Nature of Human Creativity brings together an incredible diversity of viewpoints, helping students and researchers to see the points of consensus as well as the differences in contemporary perspectives.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This superb collection of interdisciplinary essays contains 23 chapters, each written by an eminent scholar in the field of creativity ... The vast differences between individual stories and experiences will appeal to graduate students and young researchers who may need confirmation that there are many ways to be a successful researcher and scientist, and seasoned scholars across a variety of disciplines may feel invigorated and refueled by recognizing themselves in the narrative and finding pieces of research questions connected to their own.' S. W. French, Choice
