Study of genius
The systems approach regards creativity as a process at the intersection of individual, social and cultural factors (Amabile, 1983, 1996; Csikszentmihalyi, 1988, 1996, 1999; Simonton, 1988; Woodman and Schoenfield, 1989). It defines creativity as the result of "the interaction of a system composed of three elements: a culture that contains symbolic rules, a person who brings novelty into the symbolic domain, and a field of experts who recognize and validate the innovation" (Csikszentmihalyi, 1996: 6).
