Kreativitetens yttre villkor: Miljöer, rörlighet och nobelpristagare

Research output: ThesisDoctoral Thesis (monograph)


It is a largely accepted fact that creative individuals are products of their social environment. This book takes the concept further and builds upon the hypothesis that in most cases a creative individual is the result of not just one, but several environments. Using the time-geographical method it studies how individuals passing through different environments are shaped into future Nobel Prize laureates.
