      Hi Michael,

      Exactly! - All the different "folk definitions" of Creativity are the exact problem...
      (As an experiment - ask the next 3 people you see/meet to define "creativity".
      See if the 3 answers given `match' at all, and also - see if any of them are: the systems model of creativity... ie - Csikszentmihalyi: 1988, 1996, 2000, etc)

      - This is why, we all desperately need Consilience... - We need Science, and Social Science, applied to the Arts/Humanities. (Like Csikszentmihalyi, Simonton etc, and, Literary Darwinism)
      All else (all non-scientific/non-empirical belief), is just personal opinion - and, will not help any Creative (novelist, painter, filmmaker etc) succeed - nor will it help anyone usefully analyze creativity, in the arts/humanities. (So, thank goodness for Literary Darwinism...!) And, also: for Science.

      Of course our folk culture makes the distinction:

      any rule-based activity is a "science"
      any non-rule-based activity is an "art"

      life - and all its activities - are an art

      formulae/algos are a "science"
      creating them/applying them/using them is an "art"
