Creativity Across Domains: Faces of the Muse sorts through the
sometimes-confusing theoretical diversity that domain specificity
has spawned. It also brings together writers who have studied
creative thinkers in different areas, such as the various arts,

what is known about the cognitive processes, ways of
conceptualizing and solving problems, personality and motivational
attributes, guiding metaphors, and work habits or styles that best
