Creativity, Psychology and the History of Science by Howard E Gruber and Katja Bodeker pdf free download. Psychologists have often exploited the history of science as a reservoir of examples for studies of creativity. In the same vein, historians of science occasionally refer to psychological research in order to enrich narrative accounts with insights into the working of the human mind.

Howard Gruber’s contributions to the understanding of creativity are path-breaking because they distinguish themselves from these one-sided approaches. They stand out with their profound understanding of both the historical and the psychological dimensions of scientific creativity. Gruber’s insights are based on a combination of detailed case studies and the development of a theoretical framework that is
closely integrated with his historical investigations.

His work is part of the larger enterprise of conceiving human thinking as an evolving system driven by the reflection of interactions of the subject with the real world, an enterprise launched by Jean Piaget with whom Gruber collaborated intensively. This book offers a comprehensive survey of Gruber’s work and focuses on the heritage he left behind for building a historical theory of the development
of human knowledge in which individual creativity can be understood within its changing historical contexts.
It covers a broad array of his work and opens with two introductions, one by Katja Bödeker, which places this work within the framework of different theoretical approaches bearing on the relation between psychology and the history of science. The second introduction is written by Howard Gruber himself and offers a masterfully succinct account of his evolving systems approach. The idea for this book emerged during a memorable visit of Howard Gruber and his wife Doris Wallace to the Max-Planck-Institute for the History of Science in the summer of 1999.
