The article highlights the results of scientific and theoretical reflection on interdisciplinary approaches to the interpretation of the creative potential phenomenon and its content. From the philosophical studies of the past to modern scientific research, human potential has been studied as a biologically and socioculturally determined substantial basis of human life. Creativity is defined through the parameter of uniqueness along with the universal ability to develop, that leads to a qualitative transformation, renewal of existing things, a qualitatively new activity. The basis of creative potential is the parameter of "infinite complexity". It is expressed in the uniqueness, unpredictability of ways to create and to get new knowledge, skills, abilities, to build connections with the world, etc. The paper presents interpretation of individual’s creative potential as a holistic dynamic resource characterized by latency, nonlinearity of development, polysemantic, instability, unpredictability, transgressiveness.  Ability to transgress is the main resource for the individual’s realization and for the progressive development of society and civilization, however it enables powerful destructive consequences. The latter makes the research of internal regulations for the development of individual’s creative potential quite perspective.
