The two-conditions view of creativity
Journal/Book: J Creative Behav. 1996; 30: 1050 Union Rd, Buffalo, NY 14224. Creative Educ Foundation Inc. 126-143.
Abstract: In an attempt to overcome the difficulties people face in defining the complex concept ''creativity,'' the present paper will consider creativity as two basic conditions: (a) as an interaction condition, and (b) as a transformation-imagination-fantasy condition. Creativity is a process that is the combination of these conditions of interaction, transformation, imagination, and fantasy. These conditions operate simultaneously in the activities of individuals. Indeed, none of them can stand alone, since one implies the others if creativity is to occur.
