The Ontology of the Creative Process

  • Ignacy Stanisław Fiut
Part of the Analecta Husserliana book series (ANHU, volume 77)


In this essay the focus will be put on sketching out the ontological circumstances of the creative process typical for creative activity and for natural evolutionary processes. Thus, the basic aim is to describe and present an outline of possible ways of existence of all the elements in the process resulting in a work of art and a quite new form of biological existence, incarnated in a species, stemming from its genotype and contained in its m-DNA.
