Encyclopedia of Creativity, Two-Volume Set, 2nd Edition

The first edition of the successful Encyclopedia of Creativity served to establish the study of creativity is a field in itself. Now completely updated and revised in its second edition, coverage encompasses the definition of creativity; the development and expression of creativity across the lifespan; the environmental conditions that encourage or discourage creativity; creativity within specific disciplines like music, dance, film, art, literature, etc.; the relationship of creativity and mental health, intelligence, and learning styles; and the process of being creative. This reference also appeals to a lay audience with articles specifically on the application of creativity to business settings. Available online via ScienceDirect and in limited print release.
