On Creativity is a collection of previously unpublished or unavailable essays by David Bohm, which are all related directly to the nature of creativity. A significant portion of the material draws overtly from Bohm's perception as a practising scientist - his notions of what underlies a paradigm shift, or how laws of nature, theories and hypotheses are perceived, rationalized and axiomatized. However, the novelty and appeal of Bohm's views of these processes is the suggestion that the work of the visual artist is remarkably similar to that of the scientist. He explores these similarities at length and goes so far as to suggest that the creative processes of the scientist and the artist are at work in every person.
