Some researchers believe that creativity is the outcome of the same cognitive processes as intelligence, and is only judged as creativity in terms of its consequences, i.e. when the outcome of cognitive processes happens to produce something novel, a view   We often remark on the marvelous creativity of young children's drawings, dramatic play, and invented language.

The thesis of this chapter is that knowledge and reason play an important role in creative thinking. I equate knowledge and expertise (e.g., Ericsson, , , ; Weisberg, ), the capacity to perform at a high level, acquired through practice (e.g., an expert pilot); or the possession of exceptional knowledge, acquired through study (e.g., an expert on medieval art). The four-stage approach of Wallas (), derived from Helmholtz’s ideas on the thought process involved in creative ideas (Rhodes, ; Sadler-Smith, ), is a heuristic working model that illustrates key cognitive processes of creativity; it states that the creative process can be divided into the stages of preparation, incubation   Creative Cognition presents what is probably the most nearly complete and thoroughly tested of the existing theories of creativity based upon the principles of cognitive science. The theory is compelling and the experiments ingenious, in an area that is very difficult to investigate.

Cognitive research on creativity is both traditional and innovative. It is traditional in the sense that many of the well-recognized processes, structures, and stores from mainstream cognitive psychology have been used to understand creative thinking.

Creativity is pivotal to solving complex problems of many kinds, yet how cognitive flexibility dynamically supports creative processes is largely unexplored.
