Reflections on the Ontological Mythologies of Creativity

Alexander Kofinas, Sandar Win

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The authors of this chapter also adopt a philosophical perspective on creativity, looking into mainstream literature reviews on the subject published by some of the most highly ranked management and organisation journals. In their discussion the authors also draw on polytheistic religious systems, the imagination of William Blake and Charles Darwin’s account of evolution. They end up conceptualising what they call the “ontological mythology of creativity”.
