In the excellent work ‘Creativity’ (1996) Csikszentmihalyi talks about Domain Problems (across many domains). As an example – I also posted on Domain Problems, here: (using the domain of Movie Screenwriting as an example) http://storyality.wordpress.com/2012/12/06/storyality-13-creativity-and-solved-domain-problems/ and here – this is a good list for researchers, looking for important research topics in this particular domain in culture: http://storyality.wordpress.com/2014/07/15/storyality-117-velikovskys-40-domain-problems-in-screenwriting-or-consilient-phds-id-like-to-see/ Cheers JT Author Posts Viewing 2 posts - 1 through 2 (of 2 total) The forum ‘Default Forum’ is closed to new topics and replies.
