It is amazing to see how lectures unroll one after another. Only few weeks back I blogged about there being no concrete method to define creativity and lo and behold, here I am reading a paper by Gardner trying to define and categorize creativity!! I would agree with his method and points taken to classify creativity. Though they may not encompass every aspects of creative works, they tends to cover major portion of them. Indeed, classification of work to be creative or not depends on domain and field. While, uniqueness and importance of the work is decided by the area in which it was accomplished, it is equally depended on the society or the judges of the work. History has proven many times that even the most magnificent work can be rejected by society.
