Summary/Abstract: The article deals with the scientific approaches towards a creative society by defining its terms in such different sciences and their branches as aesthetics and philosophy, sociology and communication, economics and management. The author shows the development and etymology of the term “creation“ in antique Greek and Roman cultures. Aesthetics presupposes an individual, artistic creation, the different sorts of creation, and creative activity; philosophy presupposes an existential creation, a creative identity, creative ethos, and creative regions. Sociology presupposes society as an environment of creation, a knowledge (information) society, a postmodern society, a post-industrial society, a mediated society, a sociology of creation, a creative index, social and creative capital, a human clime, and a creative geography. The context of economy and management allows one to speak about a creative economy, creative industries, a creative class, and a management of creativity. According to the author, these disjunctions are provisory because the terms migrate from one science to another one and are overgrown with different semantic varnishes.
