Creativity is a mental and practical social activity not restricted to one specific category [of people] , [whether] male or female, [or] white, black or yellow…and so on; it is, rather, subject to the nature of society’s culture and society’s foundational framework that is a part of conventional culture which delineates the manner of upbringing, educational values and the outlet and scope of human energy. Innovation is, at one and the same time, the harvest of all this, an effective power in it and a tool to change it.
Creativity has conditions
Today there is a competitive struggle circulating among developed societies in relation to the development of creative abilities and increasing the number of creative people. That is because creative ability flourishes and grows by virtue of social circumstances, constituents and conditions and is not, as is commonly held, a natural gift one hundred percent. The need of societies for creative people increases with the nature of the current civilisational development and [with] the entering of the age of information explosion and the information society. Innovations have become accreditation documents of society’s membership among the civilisation of the information age club. Here, social thought is distinguished with the flourishing of innovative abilities among individuals, the supremacy of scientific thinking, the availability of a space for dialogue and competition on a methodological and orderly basis and [also with] thinking here being collective, that is, the thinking of a team that transcends personal drive and one-sided isolationism. We deem communal thought here [to be] prospectively anticipating the future in a uniform, radical development or change.
