This paper presents a small sample of the results Creatology has achieved during its first thirty years of existence from 1977 to 2007. The main chapters below deal with the short prehistory of Creatology, its paradigmatic framework and applications. The author’s ambition was first and foremost to outline the theoretical foundation, because pragmatic work in this domain is over-represented at the expense of losing even the theoretical minimum obligatory for any scientific enterprise. The article gives also descriptions of what it calls the “Big Bang” of Creatology and the mainstream view about creativity based on the generalized market structure.
