ABSTRACT. This essay analyses the notion of creativity in Garroni’s 1978 writing. In this work Garroni outlines the notion of creativity in relation to its opposite, regularity, legality. This is done by referring to Kant. In this sense, creativity represents a transcendental principle. At the basis of creativity there is therefore an innate faculty of the human animal that acts both in the application of a rule as in its subversion.
