Creativity and Ethics: A Research Synthesis

Friday, November 10
9:15 AM - 10:15 AM
Location: 211 A

The twenty-first century shift from an industrial economy to one driven by innovation invites seemingly endless opportunity for both creative advancement and destruction. This ambiguous potential has generated substantial research interest in the intersection between creativity and ethics. In this session, we report key findings from a systematic review of empirical literature on the creativity-ethics relationship, identifying major themes across studies published in the fields of business, creativity, sociology, design, gifted education, and psychology. Highlighting similarities and differences across domains, we discuss implications for the gifted youth likely to be at the forefront of future innovation.
