Resumé | Abstract

Based on the work of primarily Michel Foucault, this article explores how the late-modern human being is incited to be a creative individual; which attitudes, actions, behavior and discourses the individual is inscribed with, and governed by. With reference to contemporary research on creativity, the article’s focus will be on the discourse of creative learning, described in its contemporary appearance. Thus, the article scrutinizes the regularities of statements, which form the creative learning discourse, and discloses (some of) the norms and attitudes that shape and form the behavior of both the learning student and the lifelong learner and also, how they frame our ability to perceive, talk and understand ourselves in the context of a late-modern, and innovative society that emphasizes lifelong learning.
