Abstract

The article deals with the concept of creativity and creative education, analyzing its content and de­velopment based on the philosophy of Bergson, Dewey, Nietzsche, Deleuze. The aim is to show dif­ferent presumptions for the analysis of creativity as a phenomenon and consequently its features while applying creativity in practice, especially for person education. The understanding of human creativity is explicated as a phenomenon of the rational thought in action and also as phenomenon of irrational pro­duct of instinct, also looking how they are related with to the aesthetical intuition. The insights of the mentioned philosophers are contextualized in the postmodern age of mass production, when every new concept and its content become an empty but well-selling sign as Joas has warned about creativ­ity and creative action. From the critical pedagogy perspective (Freire, McLaren, Giroux), the insidi­ousness of education is discussed, trying to find any way out of such situation of the total “copy ma­chine” and inviting everybody to be more critical in education.
