Description

The usual notion of creativity emphasizes the dimension of novelty, the creation of something new. But creativity also involves the notion that this "something new" should be useful for someone else, whoever he or she may be. How are the dimensions of novelty and usefulness related? What do we know from cognitive sciences (in particular, from the field of creative problem solving) about this relation? What do we know from those fields, such as engineering design, in which these two dimensions are strongly held together? And what about creativity in the artistic world, in which apparently usefulness does not play any role?
