Creativity and Education, Volume 46

0 Reviews

The author gives a lucid account of creativity and its educational context. He discusses the creative process, the character of different kinds of creativity, creative people, developing creativity, and the creative child at school, to give his readers an understanding of the issues that home or school have to face in fostering a creative, non-habit-bound child.

The book should be particularly welcome to all concerned with education in view of the present stress on child-centred education and on the development of individual children's abilities, especially their powers of original thought and search to the full.
