Knowledge and Creativity in Digital Society

This work deals with the topic of creativity understood as a complex path carried out along all lifetime and that cannot be attributable to the mere accumulation of concepts. The changing social scenario promotes the dimension of the possible, the nonlinearity, the overcoming of preestablished trajectories of knowledge by triggering processes of meta-knowledge and meta-representation, a dimension in which the creative mind finds a breeding ground. The work explores the relationship between technology and creativity in consideration of the peculiar segment, the artistic one, where with greater evidence the work of the creative is unfolded.

The basic observation about these analyses is that any human activity takes place in a social and historical context, therefore in a “net of meanings and relations” that inevitably produce perceptions, behaviours and contexts conventions. The dynamics of the creative talent, in this way, deploys all its potential not like “the place of the cleric”, of the artist, of the works personnel, anymore, but it is committed to the hands of the man who, during the “construction” of his knowledge path, can have all the prosthetic/technological tools suitable for creating.
