Freeman, James; And Others
Largely as a result of the extensive work carried out during the past decade, the concept of creativity has become increasingly important in educational and psychological thinking. This monography attempts to impose a framework within which to describe the main varieties of research on creativity. The monograph includes the following areas as chapters: (1) creativity as related to intelligence and personality; (2) special abilities in creativity, the structure of intellect; (3) special abilities in creativity, some research into convergent and divergent thinking; (4) educational factors in creativity in terms of observed psychological differences between individuals. A selected bibliography intended to facilitate further inquiry is grouped into the following sections: (1) general and theoretical analyses of creativity, (2) studies of creativity in the arts and sciences, (3) personality and intellectual characteristics in creativity, (4) the development of creativity, (5) environmental studies, (6) studies of problem-solving in creativity, (7) group processes and group effectiveness in creativity, (8) tests and measurements, and (9) research reports prepared by the Aptitudes Research Project, University of Southern California.
