Chapter 6 Social Aspects of Concept Invention

Part of the Computational Synthesis and Creative Systems book series (CSACS)


This chapter surveys frameworks that describe social creativity. It focuses on mathematics, but includes work which heads in a more general direction: first, by examining social creativity in music, and then turning to a description of several new results that use formal, qualitative, and simulation techniques to theorise social creativity on computers. The chapter includes a pilot study examining the salience of various frameworks for the analysis of mathematical text.
