Creativity, Knowledge Production, and Innovation Studies: A Response to Ghassib's "Where Does Creativity Fit into a Productivist Industrial Model of Knowledge Production?"
Rickards, Tudor
Gifted and Talented International, v25 n1 p99-101 Aug 2010
The basic premise of the paper (Ghassib, 2010) provides much needed scope for scholarly discussion regarding the location of creativity and innovation in the processes of knowledge production. Its conceptualization may be examined alongside recent contributions to creativity theory and practice at the levels of individual, team, and organization. I applaud the rich historical scholarship evidenced in Professor Ghassib's (2010) paper. I concentrate rather on its analysis of modernist societies and the contributions that are being made by contemporary researchers. It would be amiss, however, not to mention the debt owed to Joseph Schumpeter for his seminal work into the institutionalization of science as a means of innovation and change through creative destruction (Schumpeter, 1934, 1947).
