Extraordinary creative activity has been characterized as revolutionary, flying in the face of what is established and producing not what is acceptable but what will become accepted. According to this formulation, highly creative activity transcends the limits of an existing form and establilishes a new principle of organization. However, the idea that extraordinary creativity transcends estabilished limits is misleading when it is applied to the arts, even though it may be valid for the science. Differences between highly creative art and highly creative science arise in part from a difference in their goals. For the sciences, a new theory is the goal and end result of the creative act. Innovative science produces new propositions in terms of which diverse phenomena can be related to one another in more coherent ways.Such phenomena as a brilliant diamond or a nesting bird are relegated to the role of data, serving as the means for formulating or testing a new theory.

靠,自己打一遍就感觉清楚多了,刚刚看的时候完全是模模糊糊读个60%。不过那个 innovative science produces new propositions in terms of which diverse phenomena can be realted to one another in more coherent ways. 这句还是有点问题。大致字面是说在innovative science产生出的新的propositions下,分离的phenomena可以通过更加coherent的方式被彼此联系起来?
