The ability to create is what distinguishes us from other living things, it is what makes possible to combine the knowledge in an original and useful way in the pursuit of invention and innovation. Creativity can be seen as an essential tool aimed at the production of original and useful solutions for invention and innovation, which in a changing world, is what allows the development of our societies. A review of literature relating to the epistemology of complexity allowed to synthesize the basic tenets of this new paradigm on four main principles: the dialogic principle, the self-eco-organization principle, the systemic principle and the principle of systemic integration of the knower in knowledge. The model of creativity from the paradigm of complexity is built, first studying each of the component parts and then setting the dynamic relationships between each of these elements.

Keywords: creativity, innovation, principles, paradigm of complexity
