Creativity of Chinese and American Cultures: A Synthetic Analysis
Niu, Weihua; Kaufman, James C.
Journal of Creative Behavior, v47 n1 p77-87 Mar 2013
The article integrates the seven papers of the two special issues with a special focus on discussing the differences in people's beliefs about creativity between the Chinese and American cultures: How it is conceived, evaluated, and nurtured. It uses three metaphors to capture major differences in these aspects, and highlights areas with profound cultural variations in conceptions and creative education for future research.
