Summary/Abstract: Due to the strong spread of modern scientific technology to all areas of human life, especially the arts, requires active research and understanding of the impact factor of historical time in the creative process. At this stage, despite the large number of scientific papers dealing separately as creative problem and the problem of historical time, we can say that the interaction of these two categories , which directly affects the outlook of the artist and artistic product formation remains open and is practically research.The urgency of the matter but it is quite obvious, because the creative process and influences social reality and political situation of a certain historical period. Thus the study of the interaction of historical time and the creative process, and the first direct impact on the final result of the latter is the most burning questions of our time. Defining the relationship aspect of the creative process and the historical time open up new possibilities for the analysis of the current state of culture, study its interaction with social reality.The article focuses on the interaction of historical time and the creative process, as one of the most pressing issues of contemporary. Namely, the problem of determining the creative process of historical time, in connection with its impact on development and a culture.The article presents a number of scientific studies that deals with the topic of organic interaction of the categories "historical time" and "creative process". It primarily works in which creativity is seen as a phenomenon that, in turn, is influenced by the historical reality (L. Steklovа, K. Shurtakov).Emphasized, that many modern scientific research devoted to the topic of creative interdisciplinary perspective.The question of influence public consciousness on the creative process is concerned in the work of Y. Andreev, M.Ashmanis, V. Baranov, F. Girenok, V. Eliseev, N. Frantsuzova. Aesthetic aspect of creativity is seen in studies of M.Arnaudov, P. Valery, H.-G. Gadamer, R. Ingarden, E. Cassirer, Jose Ortega y Gasset, J. Sartre, V. Bychkov Y. Borev, S. Wyman, M. Kagan, A. Losev, M. Epshteyn, O. Benyuk, A. Bychko, T. Gumenuk, N. Zhukova, T. Krivosheya, L. Levchuk, O. Onishchenko, Y. Petrov, A. Polishchuk, M. Severinova.Noted that the current interest issues due to the creative process, from one side, the growth of innovative components in human activities, development of scientific and technical progress and aspiration to control education and development of creative personalities. On the other hand, the desire of studying personality by finding the secrets of creative activity, as one of its fundamental manifestations.The special value in the context of the examined question is presented for us by work of E. Fromm "The Creative Attitude, in Creativity and Its Cultivation", in which talked that the most important criterion of creation are descriptions and processes which activate creative activity and productivity of creative process. And it is not only the internal subconscious processes of personality, but also a lot of external factors that affect the creative process. Artistic work always contains the lines of personality of his creator, which not only cognizes, looks after and experiences the most various vital phenomena but also is their direct participant.Separately the known theories of the stages of creative process, which are an important constituent in forming of creative project and directly depend on many external factors, are examined in the article.The special attention within the framework of our article is devoted the advanced study of the modern Ukrainian researcher S. Kurbatov "Historical time as a determinant of the creative process", which is the first substantial step on a way to the awareness of this question.Universality of the aesthetic going near reality, Ukrainian scientist, his indifference to the utilitarian parameters of life allows to get around determination of essence of co-operation of historical time and creative process.Summing up the results of his research, S. Kurbatov says that the movement of history is somewhat reminiscent of a kaleidoscope, which again and again, changing the configuration of the pattern of human culture. It is this dynamic cultural life mankind can be secured with such fundamental philosophical and aesthetic categories as "historical time" and "creative process", concepts that embody the non-randomness, and even fatality historical movement.According to S. Kurbatov, every cultural phenomenon is the result of the creative process in a particular historical space a і harmonic or disharmonic in this space. The process of harmonization of life is carried out due to a creative process. As in a theology paradigm a creative act is preceded the world and man, a creative process is preceded a culture, determining the state of the last. If to examine history as permanent creative process, exactly in him and due to him harmonization of life is carried out.In the final section of the article summarized the research identified ways to further possible solutions to the problem. Of course, the final result or product of creative activity in every different kind of creativity, but the psychological aspects of the creative intention of committing one, and be sure to include: the creator or the subject of creativity, the presence of intrinsic qualities – skill, knowledge, experience, creative skills, and external factors that directly affect the creative process and the end result of creative activity – socio-historical events, certain conditions or circumstances.Further more in-depth study of the creative process of determination of historical time will open up new horizons in the study of world culture pages.
