From the Dawn of Humanity to the 21st Century: Creativity as an Enduring Survival Skill
Puccio, Gerard J.
Journal of Creative Behavior, v51 n4 p330-334 Dec 2017
While the scientific investigation into creativity is a recent phenomenon, creative thinking has always been a crucial feature of humanity. The ability to creatively solve problems enabled early humans to survive and laid the foundation for the creative imagination that has resulted in our modern society. While most humans no longer face physical threats, life and work in the 21st century demands heightened creativity skills. To meet these demands, educational practices must leverage the insights and strategies gained through research into the trainability of creative thinking.
