Original and Derived Creativity in Scientific Thinking. Bulletin No. 39.
Van Norren, B.
The assumption underlying the ideas presented in this study is that each of these two types of scientific creativity is accompanied by a specific psychological approach on the part of the scientist to his or her world of experience. A schema is presented for illustrating the processes of scientific perception, thinking, formulation, testing, and modification. A second schema localizes and defines elements of the scientist's world of experience and traces their interrelationships. The study concludes with a recapitulative typefication of original and derived creative scientific thinking, and a discussion of how these ideas fit into a wider psychological context. (MH)
