The Interplay Between Culture and Creativity

Kuan Chen Tsai


Creativity per se is a convoluted phenomenon. With regard to distinct manifestations, the impact of culture on creativity is discussed. The belief system is embedded in the creative productions across different cultures. The exertion of culture on creativity is presented within a reciprocal process that, alongside culture, also weaves historical, societal, and individual factors. Further suggestions for cross-cultural studies of creativity are also discussed.

Key words: Creativity; Culture; Cross-cultural studies

Résumé La créativité en soi est un phénomène compliqué. En ce qui concerne les manifestations distinctes, l’impact de la culture sur la créativité est discutée. Le système de croyance est ancrée dans les productions créatives à travers différentes cultures. L’effort de la culture sur la créativité est présentée dans un processus réciproque qui, aux côtés de la culture, tisse également des facteurs historiques, sociaux et individuels. D’autres suggestions pour les études transculturelles de la créativité sont également discutés.
