This summer, I’m finishing the second edition of my creativity textbook, Explaining Creativity. The first edition, published in 2006, had 16 chapters from a variety of scientific perspectives–psychology, of course, but also anthropology, history, and sociology.
I’m writing new chapters on the following topics:
- Creativity and education
- Assessment of creativity
- Neuroscience of creativity (brain imaging studies)
- Two chapters on the creative cognition approach
Also, I’m completely rewriting all of the other chapters to incorporate the latest research.
So for those of you who know the first edition, or for those instructors who have used it in a college course, what would you like to see in the second edition?
