Abstract: The purpose of the present study was to examine the relationship between principals’ philosophical mindedness and their creativity. Our participants were principals (N=48) of Ferdowsi University of Mashhad, who were randomly selected among 105 principals of the university. Two questionnaires were administered with the principals: Two questionnaires in the Persian language were administered with the participants: one for measuring the creativity and the other one for meas- uring philosophical mindedness. The results showed a significant, positive relationship between the principals’ philosophical mindedness and their creativity. The results of a series of multiple regression analyses showed that among the three dimensions of philosophical mindedness (i.e., comprehension, penetration, flexibility), comprehension was the only significant predictor of creativity. The implications of the data have been discussed.
