Great to see Dr. Gardner's mention in this discussion.

Dr. Howard Gardners words on creativity holds very ingenious thoughts. From his works, "Intelligence Reframed: Multiple Intelligence for 21st Century", wherein he introduced the theory, also talks of creativity as.....

"People are creative when they can solve problems, create products or raise issues in a domain in a way that is initially novel but is eventually accepted in one ore more cultural settings. Similarly, a work is creative, if it stands out at first in terms of its novelty but ultimately comes to be a accepted with a domain. The acid test of creativity is simple. In the wake of putatively creative work, has the domain been changed ? "
