Learning objectives

Psychology and Creativity In recent years much has been done to propose forms of intersection between art and psychology. Among the recognized factors which underlie these intersections, there is the recognition of the value of the cognitive processes that generate the creative path. Students will be able to acquire the necessary knowledge to face the artistic and creative experience and its development with tools and methodologies of the psychology of art according to an experimental and phenomenological approach.

Prerequisites and basic notions

No prerequisites necessary


The creation process is complex and multidimensional. Several aspects are involved in it; among these are the cognitive factors that support the various phases of which the creative process is composed. The course intends to offer students a key to understanding the various definitions that have been given in psychology to the construct of "creativity" with a particular focus on the cognitive aspects involved, the elements characterising an artistic work and the evaluation processes of creative products. In particular, the course aims to provide the following knowledge:
- the theories concerning the construct of creativity
- the different phases of the creative process;
- the cognitive processes involved;
- evaluation practices: the judgement of experts vs. non-experts.
