ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the idea of David Perkins and Robert Weisberg concerning the role of creative thinking in addressing puzzle solving. He argues on the belief of Perkins and Weisberg that creative puzzle solving is closely related to the process of solving problem in the field of art making. The author stresses that an understanding of creativity should be based on puzzle solving alone, problem solving in terms of puzzle solving and creativity should not be understood on problem solving. In addition, the author also explores the challenges on showing overdependence on puzzle solving as a perspective for the creative process.
