  • This paper proposes a theory of creativity, referred to as honing theory, which posits that creativity fuels the process by which culture evolves through communal exchange amongst minds that are self-organizing, self-maintaining, and self-reproducing. [...] Key Result Evidence comes from empirical studies, an agent-based computational model of cultural evolution, and a model of concept combination.Expand Abstract
