On the problem of creative genius -- one would suppose first that one would
need a definition. One would then need a list of people on which we could
obtain general consensus that they were indeed creative geniuses. Perhaps
also a profiling method which would exclude those who were idiots savants or
creative in a non-humanistic field, e.g. mathematics. Then one would need
some method for deciding the characteristics to be polled. This has all
been tried before, mais est-ce cela vaut la chandelle?
