Chapter Summary

In this chapter author shall adopt a fairly restrictive standard, and in consequence limit the notion of creativity to Science and Art. A creative scientific or artistic product constitutes or incorporates a novel solution to a problem, inherent in a background of prior products, but not soluble based on these prior products themselves. But this is not yet the whole story, for novel solutions to problem-solutions may be related to their background in at least two different ways. First, they may simply go beyond, or extend, the existing background. Second, and more interestingly, they may actually conflict with this existing background, or necessitate the modification of this background. In short, the thesis of this section can be simply stated: creative scientific or artistic products are transcendent products: they transcend the tradition out of which they sprang.

Keywords: ART; Artistic products; PROCESS; PRODUCT; SCIENCE; scientific products; transcendent products
