The Paths of Creation

Creativity in Science and Art


Sixto J. Castro and Alfredo Marcos

Edited By Sixto J. Castro and Alfredo Marcos

The Paths of Creation explores the idea of creativity both in science and in art. The editors have collected papers from different philosophers working on philosophy of science and aesthetics to show that the creative processes of science and art share identical procedures: metaphor, ruled method, analogy, abduction, similarity. They are both surrounded by emotions, contain inspirations, proceed through revolutions that maintain some kind of continuity, and have a long common history in which no one worried about whether something was science or art. The purpose of this volume is to show that there are no different rationalities applied to science and art, but the same human reason developing in different forms to create not just different disciplines, but different worlds as well.

Acknowledgements “Art and Science” is a research group at the University of Valladolid (Spain) with connexions with other researchers from Spain, Mexico, Brazil, USA, Argentina and France. Our group has spent years working to establish a relationship between both fields. As a result of our research, we have organized roundtables, workshops and international meetings (Valencia, 2009), and have edited a previous book entitled Arte y ciencia: mundos convergentes (Plaza y Valdés, 2010), which has been pub- lished simultaneously in Spain and Mexico. The present book is the result of the re- search activities of the group in collaboration with colleagues from other universities. We want to express our deep gratitude to all our colleagues who have contributed to this volume, as well as to Sudabee Lotfian for his invaluable help in correcting Eng- lish language and to Caroline Schopfer for her careful editing job. We also thank the University of Valladolid support for the research group. And we thank as well the Regional Government of Castilla y León for financial support through the research project 18ILBM99.
