Creativity Is More than Silly, More than Art, More than Good: The Diverse Career of Arthur Cropley
Kaufman, James C.
Creativity Research Journal, v27 n3 p249-253 2015
In this article, I highlight some of Arthur Cropley's work that has been the most influential to me as a scholar. Cropley's work has continually pushed the boundaries by exploring what creativity is and isn't, squashing myths, and not making assumptions. I specifically discuss Cropley's research and theory on the importance of convergent thinking, on the role of creativity in science and engineering, and on the potential for evil with creativity.
