Howard E. Gruber has changed the domain of creative studies in several ways: by making it more realistic with his systems theory, introducing the idea of "a theory of the individual" and developing a method to this ends, and positioning the domain of creative studies where it can build on the domain of morality. He has opened more than a few eyes to a new domain--moral creativity--and this special issue shows Gruber's influence in this regard. As a result, this first Festschrift of Creativity Research Journal provides readers with unique, novel, and creative ideas.
