Creativity and Entrepreneurship: From Cognitive Science to Management Education

Creativity and Entrepreneurship: From Cognitive Science to Management Education

Ulaş Başar Gezgin

Abstract


In this article, we had a journey from cognitive science to management education through the themes of creativity and entrepreneurship. Although an increasing number of works are getting published on entrepreneurial cognition, cognitive science itself is not in close proximity with management/organization studies. Management/organization themes rarely appear on cognitive science journals. This can be partially explained by the fact that we have a more limited number of cognitive science journals compared to management/organization journals, and that the mainstream cognitive science still relies on individual cognition which leads to distancing itself from organizational aspects. Although ideas such as collective cognition and/or intelligence are not new, they are mostly understudied in cognitive science. On the other hand, we have a high number of research studies on creativity. Entrepreneurship involves creativity, which means entrepreneurship education should be closely associated with creativity research in cognitive science. Some of the corresponding points between cognitive science and entrepreneurship education are connected through the theme of creativity, while some others are not. Both are presented and discussed in this paper. To sum up, this article aims to connect creativity research in cognitive science with entrepreneurship education by pointing out already existing connections and building the missing links.
