Creativity in George Herbert Mead
Pete Addison Y. Gunter
University Press of America, 1990 - Philosophy - 110 pages
The main contributor to this volume is David Louis Miller of the University of Texas at Austin. Both a student of Mead's and an editor and defender of his thought, Miller attempts in his essay and subsequent responses to demonstrate both the overall coherence of Mead's philosophy and the extent to which that philosophy makes (in a social context) room for the concept of individual creativity. Miller thus corrects many false or otherwise superficial interpretations of Mead's social psychology, and of, by implication, contemporary symbolic interactionism. Miller's interpretation of Mead is criticized and amplified by several commentators, including Charles W. Morris, a friend and colleague of Mead's at the University of Chicago. A general introduction and biography are provided by the editor. Co-published with the Center for the Philosophy of Creativity.
