Creativity is nowadays used to predicate many different sorts of things. Although in philosophy it is mostly discussed with respect to the arts, one can talk about it in sciences, sports, entrepreneurship, politics, pedagogy, or in more mundane situations as with culinary or humorous creativity. In what sense are all these forms of creativity alike? What is it that makes them valuable as such? How does creativity differ from close-by parents like originality, inventiveness, or intelligence? The purpose of this entry is (i) to answer such questions by analyzing philosophical and psychological studies on creativity and (ii) to give a characterization of what creativity really is.
