Creativity as a Question of Bildung
Hammershoj, Lars Geer
Journal of Philosophy of Education, v43 n4 p545-558 Nov 2009
The aim of the article is to contribute to the conceptualization of creativity in education. The article makes use of the self-Bildung perspective, which is an up-to-date version of the Neo-humanistic notion of the formation of the personality in order to interpret the original notion of the "four stages" of the creative process. The conclusion is that in this perspective creativity can be understood as a state of transcendence and a practice of taste. Finally, the article seeks to sketch out a suggestion of the creative capacities that are important to cultivate in education.
