Summary Not all examples of creativity can be explained by the functionalist view that creativity is inherent in an artefact and comes about due to a “creative” individual’s efforts within a conducive environment. I build a case for creativity research which overturns assumptions inherent in functionalist research and conceptualises the phenomenon as a context specific, social construction. However, reviewing the limited critical research, I find that there is inconsistency in the theoretical models and the empirical work and ongoing privileging of the individual. It is unsurprising therefore, that, this research has been criticised for causing fragmentation within the field. I argue, to build knowledge, critical creativity research needs to adopt a systemic perspective, focus on social processes and consider collectives.
