Personality, Creativity, and Art
In this book we have attempted to gather together a set of chapters that describe new ways of approaching questions about aesthetics and innovation.Rather than going over old ground, the chapters describe attempts to break new ground. A number of chapters are by Russian scholars. A valuable aspect of Russian scholarship is that many topics, such as art history, are studied with quantitative methods rather than being left to imprecise qualitative humanistic approaches. As well as describing new methods and results, they will be novel to most western readers, because the Russian perspective on aesthetics and innovation is rather different than the traditional western perspective. Looking at phenomena from a new viewpoint never hurts and very often helps in science.
