Product description


"This book is a wonderful accomplishment. It brings together many of today's most prominent and influential scholars in two very active areas of psychology: creativity theory and developmental theory. Their collaboration has yielded a volume filled with exciting, and often surprising
insights." --James V. Wertsch, Marshall S. Snow Professor of Arts and Sciences, Washington University in St. Louis

"Creativity and Development displays the journey that good minds take together when concepts like creativity and development are being explored. The most vital features of the book reside in the common struggle to get their intellectual arms around a profoundly complex and extraordinarily
important set of psychological ideas. It is this vitality that animates the work and that will stimulate any reader interested in the subject." --Elliot W. Eisner, Lee Jacks Professor of Education and Professor of Art, Stanford University

"Creativity and Development must be considered a welcome addition to the literature on both subjects...this volume is a stimulating collection of essays that explore the connections between creativity and development...The book deserves to be broadly read by researchers in both creativity and
development. Given the reputation of the authors in the former area, I have no doubt that the volume will receive the attention it deserves."--American Journal of Psychology
