Bartels, Daniela – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2019
It is well-known that "phronesis" is realized when people reflect on their actions (praxis) and act accordingly, but the question of how this concept of practical reasoning can serve both people who make music and at the same time the music they make has not yet been answered.

Yi, Xinfa; Hu, Weiping; Scheithauer, Herbert; Niu, Weihua – Creativity Research Journal, 2013
Empirical research on the relationship between culture and creativity has thus far yielded no consistent results. Investigations of the differences are mostly post-hoc, and results are inconclusive. A creativity-value-oriented theory is proposed to explain cultural differences, as an alternative to ethnic and language effects. This study was…

Heinze, Carsten – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2012

Rather than presenting the ideology, the books encouraged identification of the children with the presented…

Separate studies of Chinese and Western individuals have suggested that there are cultural differences in perceptions of creativity, particularly in an emphasis on meritorious salience versus aesthetic salience as bases for creativity, but cross-cultural studies are needed to substantiate that difference. In this study, undergraduates from Giessen…
