What I am arguing here is that we certainly have at least an element of craft in most, if not all, other areas of creative production. And it is precisely this element that contributes to them actually being considered ‘creative’.

Moreover, the child learns not only to see other as self but, conversely, to 38 Difference understand his or her own self as an other would. This is made possible through social interaction and, in turn, makes possible the development of reflexivity and self-awareness (Mead, 1934; also Chapter 15).
