Training Creative Thinking.
Davis, Gary A.; Scott, Joseph A.
The purpose of this book is to examine various strategies for increasing creative productivity, particularly in industry and in the schools. In addition to the emphasis on training imagination, the articles included in this book analyze such critical variables as the physical and psychological atmosphere which encourages or stifles imagination, intellectual and nonintellectual characteristics of creative individuals, testing for creativity, personal and social barriers to creative imagination, "selling" one's ideas, plus other important facets of creative behavior. Combined with the main strategies presented in this volume, these topics are intended to present a comprehensive picture of what to teach when teaching creativity, how to teach it, and why it should be taught. A total of 23 articles is included. A subject index is given. (Author/CK)
