East-West Difference in Views on Creativity: Is Howard Gardner Correct? Yes, and No.
Cheng, Soh Kay
Journal of Creative Behavior, v33 n2 p112-25 2nd Qtr 1999
To test Howard Gardner's depiction of a stark contrast between Western and Eastern views and approaches to creative development, a study examined the attitudes of Singapore teachers steeped in Chinese culture (n=58) with those in the Western tradition (n=49). More of the Eastern group favored nonintervention, contrary to Gardner's proposition. (CR)
