Title
Towards a Categorical Theory of Creativity for Music, Discourse, and Cognition
Abstract
This article presents a first attempt at establishing a category-theoretical model of creative processes. The model, which is applied to musical creativity, discourse theory, and cognition, suggests the relevance of the notion of “colimit” as a unifying construction in the three domains as well as the central role played by the Yoneda Lemma in the categorical formalization of creative processes.
