Aims to build a theory of human creativity on the premisses of autopoietic systems theory (AST) in contrast to the classical representationist paradigm. Correspondingly, creativity is seen as an activity recurrently reproduced by couplings of specific states of moderate emotional arousal with “transitional” environments, i.e. “soft” social structures in which the world is permitted to be both subjective and objective; the archetype of these creative couplings can be found in the earliest “perfect environment” formed by the symbiotic infant‐mother relationship. Hypothesizes that these early states of synergy serve as centres of emotional gravity that are actively sought after by the mature creative person in his/her efforts to overcome splits of verbal space corresponding to schisms of cultural value and belief systems.
