Worldgenic theories of Creativity

Worldgenic approach to Theories of Creativity

Theoretical analysis of the multi-layered, multi-sphere and multi-leveled made it possible to reduce all the richness of its manifestation forms to a harmonious and economical and symmetrical structure, constituted by five independent worlds: objective and symbolic, social and internal, and integrating and creating the world of culture.

Moreover, each of the worlds has a universal structure, specific patterns of functioning and development, as well as a form of creative activity that is dominant in it.
