The Idea of Novelty and Creativity Sciences: This entry introduces (1) the novelty and creativity sciences (creativity, invention, innovation, design, composing, business venturing, and others), (2) the idea of multiple models of each, (3) with example multiple models (meta-models) of creativity and innovation, and (4) more detailed models than are usual (here, a 64-item model of the most creative process known – natural selection). The model of creativity models that this entry presents is the most comprehensive and detailed such model yet published, at the time of this writing – a prior article on 42 models and book on 60 exist (Greene 2001, 2005). This entry also presents four size scales (compared with levels of invention in this Encyclopedia) as contexts around and under creativity and novelty sciences: excellence sciences (scale 1), some of which are creativity & novelty sciences, one of which is 60 models of creativity and 54 models of innovation, with one creativity model, natural selection, here represented by 64 dynamics.
