Kreativitet og videnspolitik

Perspektiver på kreativitetsbegrebets indtog i og relevans for universitetets vidensproduktion

  • Jan Løhmann Stephensen
Nøgleord: Kreativitetsbegrebet, kreativitet og viden


In recent years, the discourse on the university and its societal role has seen an increase in the use of the concepts of creativity and knowledge in tandem. By arguing that Lyotard’s “The Postmodern Condition” seems to have prefigured – and to some extent even influenced – a conception of the creative aspects of knowledge production, concurrent with the rethinking of creativity in numerous other fields, this paper analyses the reason why this conceptual interconnectedness has suddenly occurred.

Jan Løhmann Stephensen åbner teorianalytisk med artiklen “Kreativitet og videnspolitik – perspektiver på kreativitetsbegrebets indtog i og relevans for universitetets vidensproduktion”. Artiklen giver en indføring i kreativitetsbegrebet ved at stille skarpt på den måde, som kreativitet og viden i de senere år er blevet vævet ind i hinanden i diskursen om universitetet og dets samfundsmæssige rolle. I artiklen analyserer Løhmann baggrunden for denne konceptuelle sammensmeltning og lancerer et bud på, hvordan videnskabens tiltagende skabende karakter skal forstås.
