The Intrinsic Dimension of Human Creativity

(p.11) Chapter 2 The Intrinsic Dimension of Human Creativity
The Soul of Creativity
Stanford University Press

This chapter develops the theory of the intrinsic dimension of creativity that is used throughout the remainder of this book. Drawing from psychological and theological sources, as well as personal narratives of authors, it illustrates that authorship largely is the product of “inner labor”—an intrinsic process motivated by inspirational forces. The chapter examines the inspirational motivations that comprise the intrinsic dimension of creativity and addresses their relevance to authors' rights.

Keywords:   creativity, authorship, inner labor, intrinsic process, inspiration, authors' rights
