Dimensions of Creativity brings together original articles that draw on a range of disciplines -- from the history and sociology of science, psychology, philosophy, and artificial intelligence -- to ask how creative ideas arise, and whether creativity can be objectively defined and measured.Margaret Boden and her colleagues Simon Schaffer, Gerd Gigerenzer, David N. Perkins, Howard Gardner, Colin Martindale, and Hans J. Eysenck demonstrate that creativity requires not only challenging new ideas but their acceptance by some relevant social group.
