The need for new thinking in the world, both official leadership and for all participating members of society has been a glaring reality in recent times. To Berenice Bleedorn, the idea of teaching students how to use the full potential of their thinking apparatus is not absurd_simply logical and timely. Creative expression is central to the development of a sense of personal identity and it is significant that creative thinking and expression are valued by the powers that be. Each of the 12 chapters discuss creative and other higher order thinking processes as suggested by the products dimension of the Guilford Model of the Structure of Intellect. Included are references to systemic thinking, global dimensionalities, futuristic or visionary thinking, and the need for leadership with capacities to engage in thinking at those higher levels of complexity. An effort is made throughout the articles to heighten awareness of Creative Studies as a substantive area of study with serious relevance to intellectual and personal development across disciplines. This book is helpful for higher education faculty and administrators and consultants and seminar facilitators in creativity and innovation for business, as well as a broad range of organizations and public service centers.
