Creativity at the Crossroad Creative Education as Moral Education?


The man’s action, thanks to its creative capacities, gave a new order to the reality: the “created reality” does not present simply a different order, but is an authentic transformation. Which criteria had directed this transformation? Which will be the criteria of future transformation? The paper presents two possible ideas about creativity and argues in favor of a creative action educated and directed by an ethical criteria.
