Editorial Reviews

Review

Creative Cognition presents what is probably the most nearly complete and thoroughly tested of the existing theories of creativity based upon the principles of cognitive science. The theory is compelling and the experiments ingenious, in an area that is very difficult to investigate. I highly recommend the book to behavioral and cognitive scientists interested in understanding the origins of creative ideas. A special bonus of the book is that it contains implications for developing creativity, which perhaps the authors will follow up in later work.

(Robert J. Sternberg, IBM Professor of Psychology and Education, Yale University)

The major contribution of this book, beyond the many original ideas that sparkle throughout the text, is its successful demonstration that the basic issues of creativity, previously relegated to mystifying pop psychology or cognitively barren psychometric approaches, can be successfully examined with the tools of cognitive psychology.

(Jonathan Schooler, Assistant Professor of Psychology, University of Pittsburgh)

Original and well articulated.... [A] benchmark for psychologists who are concerned to understand and explain one of the less tractable areas of human cognition. It can also be recommended as a rich source of practical ideas to anyone responsible for education and training in professions that depend on the regular exercise of creative thinking.

(John Richardson Times Higher Education Supplement)

Format: Paperback
Not many authors dare look into creative cognition approaches to creativity. This is a group of researchers that deserve
greater recognition as they provide in this book many answers that can be adopted by creative thinking professionals and
facilitators to help their clients get out of their thinking rut.
