The term "thought community" was first presented by the Polish biologist, Ludwig Fleck, who also used the term "thought collective." He defined these as "a community of persons mutually exchanging ideas or maintaining intellectual interaction." In my usage of this term, I refer to groups of experienced thinkers who engage in intense interaction with each other while promoting significant changes in their disciplines. Some of the researchers who have contributed new approaches to creativity over the last decade include Teresa Amabile, Jerome Bruner, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, David Feldman, Howard Gardner, Howard Gruber, David Harrington, Ravenna Helson, Keith Sawyer, and Doris Wallace.
