Abstract

To construct a theory of creativity, a review of the current beliefs concerning the structure and function of the cerebral cortex is presented. From this, several principles or characteristics suggested by this review are developed. The modern concept of creativity is then addressed and elaborated on using these principles. Finally, artistic creativity with an emphasis on architectural creativity as it relates to architectural design and education is discussed.
