Some questions concerning creativity

What is creativity? In what sense can someone be said to possess creativity? In what sense can an animal, environment, culture, society or other formation possess creativity? Can creativity be a property of a technology? Are there a set of 'problems of technology' recurrent in all human activity? Do these problems necessarily relate to the possession of creativity? In what way is creativity in science ("scientific imagination"), the same as in art and philosophy? What does it mean for creative processes to be 'blocked'? How is creativity surpressed and encouraged by social, psychological, political and economic organisations? Does creativity flourish more easily in such conditions (minor literatures)?
