Abstract

Creativity of systems is defined as organizationally connected structural variability. Sources of such creativity are examined in biological and social systems. It is found that the primary condition for any living or social system for creativity lies in the number of organizational levels. At least three levels are necessary for creativity. Organizational problems of communist states are examined as examples for noncreative social systems.
