    The purpose of this study was to examine how culture shapes creativity by reviewing empirical findings across diverse studies. The impact of culture on creativity is typically manifested in three ways: (a) people from different cultures or settings have distinct implicit and/or explicit conceptions of creativity; (b) individuals from different cultures, particularly those from individualist and collectivist cultures, show differences in preferred creative processes and creative processing modes (e.g., usefulness seems more important than novelty in the East, whereas novelty seems equally important as usefulness, if not more so, in the West) when they are engaged in creative endeavors; (c) creativity may be assessed using different measures based on culture-related contents or materials, and findings are accurate only when culturally appropriate or culturally fair measures are used. Potential implications and future directions are also proposed.

    Introduction

    Creativity, a key engineer for facilitating social harmony, sustainable human development, technological invention and scientific revolution, is manifested in human activities at different levels, from everyday life to advanced technological industries. To date, there is no consensus-based definition of creativity; however, according to a standard definition, creativity is often perceived as the ability to produce something new/novel and appropriate/useful. At present, unprecedented significance is being attributed to creativity due to the implementation of policy-based, innovation-oriented national development strategies and increasingly pressing global issues, such as global warming and terrorism. Perhaps for these reasons, the study and application of creativity have received considerable attention in the past 10 years, and many critical findings regarding creativity have been revealed through a variety of research methods and approaches. Although these findings play an increasingly important role in understanding and developing creativity, they are largely isolated and fragmented because of the various approaches and methods used. Creativity, as a key product of human culture and a tool for enriching culture, has an extremely intimate but complex relationship with culture. To obtain a comprehensive understanding of the nature of creativity, this work attempted to integrate available studies from a cultural and cross-cultural research perspective. In a sense, creativity is inherent to culture. Simply speaking, if culture is the “background,” then creativity is the “object” that is likely to become a new “background” for emerging and forthcoming “creativity (objects).” Nobody can live well and be creative without the involvement of culture. Accordingly, the present study attempted to identify how culture molds creativity from a (cross-)cultural psychology perspective.

    Creativity is deeply rooted in all cultures, but its definition and attributes vary across cultures. According to the literature, the dichotomy of “the West” and “the East” is one of the most influential approaches in characterizing (potential cultural) differences in understanding and defining creativity. “The East” commonly refers to Asian countries, especially East Asian countries such as China and other countries influenced by its culture, such as Japan or Korea; they possess general similarities in social and cultural aspects that differ from those of “Western” countries. The mentioned countries are often considered to largely represent “collectivist cultures” (i.e., cultures that emphasize that collective interests should override individuals’ interests and that fitting in with the collective is more important than being unique) and share a similar tradition that traces its origin from Asian thought, such as Taoism, Buddhism, and Confucianism. In contrast, “the West,” although usually considered to reflect “individualist cultures” (i.e., those that value the individual’s goals and interests over the group’s collective interests and goals; Xie and Paik, 2019), usually refers to the US, Western Europe, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, which are closely linked to ancient Greece and the ideas of Christianity, Judaism, and rationality (Weiner, 2000; see Dubina and Ramos, 2016). The plausibility of such clustering of the East and the West has been substantially supported by several large-scale studies, such as the World Value Survey (Inglehart et al., 1998) and the GLOBE project survey (House et al., 2004; see Xie and Paik, 2019).

    In a review of previous studies, we found that some pioneering studies have probed the link between culture and creativity from various perspectives. These studies included two fascinating approaches: a comparison of cross-cultural creativity between aboriginals from different cultural backgrounds and the investigation of the effects of multicultural experiences, such as studying abroad, and cultural priming on creativity. Leung and Chiu (2010), for example, asked European American undergraduates to complete a creative writing task (followed 5–7 days later by a creative analogies construction task) immediately after exposure to visual materials that mirrored either American or Chinese cultures or a hybrid culture created by the fusion of American and Chinese cultures. The researchers not only empirically documented a robust facilitative role of multicultural experience in both immediate and delayed creative performance but also found that this effect was primarily mediated by the generation of uncommon and unconventional ideas and by enhancing receptiveness to ideas that are natively rooted in foreign cultures and modulated by individuals’ need for cognitive closure and existential terror. Similarly, through five studies using a multimethod approach, Maddux and Galinsky (2009) empirically revealed the positive association between time spent living abroad (not traveling abroad) and creativity, demonstrating that foreign living experiences and the experience of adapting to a foreign culture temporarily boosted creativity in individuals who had lived abroad. Although considerable studies of this kind have reliably replicated the effects of exposure to foreign culture on facilitating creativity, they require integration and a more comprehensive perspective. Two recent theoretical studies (Shen and Yuan, 2015; Huang et al., 2018) attempted to integrate these “isolated findings”; however, they mainly focused on the influence of different aspects of culture (i.e., cultural values/norms and activities, multicultural learning, or cultural artifacts/products) or multicultural experiences on creativity (as an entity), without evaluating the effect of culture on different aspects of creativity. Nonetheless, creativity as a multifaceted and complex construct naturally involves distinct representation across different levels, from conceptual analysis to experimental manipulation and practical assessment. In fact, an increasing number of studies have been criticized for utilizing a “Western” (or American) framework to conceptualize and measure creativity (Glăveanu, 2010). Therefore, to deepen the understanding of the relationship between culture and creativity, particularly the role of culture in modifying and nurturing creativity, the major roles of culture in conceptualizing, manipulating, and measuring creativity were carefully identified.

    UNFORMATTED ATTACHMENT PREVIEW

    7-1 State of the Humani!es Today Listen Listen Overview: The Humani!es Today As we have seen in previous themes, the humani!es have been a means of expressing contemporary concerns and exploring !meless human ques!ons since the earliest recorded history. It is therefore par!cularly disturbing to see the humani!es under threat in recent years as governments and educa!onal ins!tu!ons worldwide have cut funding for the arts and have reduced the study of art, music, and other humani!es in schools from the elementary to university levels. Poli!cians and school administrators who have targeted the humani!es emphasize the need for fields of study that directly feed economic growth, such as science, technology, and business. This, in turn, has led to an outcry defending the value of the humani!es for our contemporary world. Proponents point out the importance to democracy of having a popula!on exposed to the great ideas of literature and philosophy along with the resul!ng ability to think cri!cally and interpret informa!on. They promote the value of humanis!c ar!facts in opening minds to different cultures and perspec!ves, which is highly important in our increasingly global age. The work of creators in the humani!es has also long been a voice for dissent and cri!que of the status quo, raising objec!ons and opposing social ills, injus!ce, and tyranny, as we will see further on in this theme. And, of course, the apprecia!on of beauty and enjoyment of ar!facts in the humani!es are essen!al in their own right for the well-being of humanity. Yet, all is not doom and gloom for the humani!es today. New ar!facts are always being created, and even if the general public may not be aware of the latest developments in the art world or who won the most recent PEN prizes for literature, there is enough widespread evidence that the humani!es are s!ll going strong through popular films, television shows, fic!on, and music that are cri!cally acclaimed and award winning. The humani!es have further adapted to the contemporary world in order to survive and thrive, par!cularly by embracing technology. Tradi!onal ar!facts like oil pain!ng and marble sculpture are s!ll being produced in the visual arts, but we are also seeing a variety of new media in use, such as 3D-printed sculpture, and digital art and design using so#ware. Compu!ng has impacted the study of disciplines like art, literature, and philosophy as well through a mul!tude of projects in the “digital humani!es,” such as pu$ng the collec!ons of art museums online, digi!zing old manuscripts and books, and providing virtual tours of historic buildings, which you experienced in Theme: Major Developments in the Humani!es. Yet, a%endance at physical art museums has grown in recent years, and museums are using more personalized, interac!ve exhibits to draw in visitors. Thus, although science and the humani!es are o#en considered to be opposites, the humani!es have embraced the latest trends in technology in a way that shows how crea!ve expression reflects the developments of the culture in which it is created. Ar!cle: Here Are 9 Reasons Why Humani!es Ma%er. What's Your Number 10? While reading this short ar!cle about the value of humani!es, consider the role the humani!es play in your life. Why do you believe humani!es are important? Ar!cle: Sarah Churchwell: Why the Humani!es Ma%er As you read this ar!cle, consider the impact of contemporary culture on human crea!ve expression. Ar!cle: A Tech Geek on Why We Need the Humani!es Read this ar!cle explaining why the humani!es are important in today’s tech-centered world. Cap!on Video: "A Tech Geek on Why We Need the Humani!es" (2:09) Website: The Collec!on Online How does experiencing an ar!fact via the internet (as opposed to in person) affect your experience of the art? Inspired by cultural developments involving technology, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York has put nearly half a million works from its collec!on online. Review this site and consider how viewing works of art online compares to viewing works in an actual museum, or how listening to live music at a concert may differ from the experience of listening to that same music on the radio. Reflect in ePor"olio Download Print Open with docReader Ac!vity Details You have viewed this topic As you learned in Theme: Major Developments in the Humani!es, the history of human crea!ve expression is nearly as old as humanity itself, and the formal study of the humani!es dates back to the Renaissance, more than 600 years ago. In each period, the ar!facts created and the percep!on of them changes, and the same is true today. Aspects of contemporary culture, including poli!cs, the economy, and developments in technology, pose new threats to the humani!es as well as unique opportuni!es.
