Adolescent Psychiatry. XV, 1988: On the Relation between Creativity and Cutting Corners. Jay Mechling. Pp. 346-366.

Marianne Makman

Cheaters, contrary to popular ethics, often do very well indeed. Some children and adults discover this fact while others "play by the rules." The author examines eight different ways of viewing cheating from "cheating is a sin" to "cheating is a member of the class of actions called transcontextual syndromes which also includes play and creativity." He suggests, without making a judgment, that "cheating" which sometimes represents creative problem-solving, be explored as a cultural phenomenon rather than only as "a problem."
