9781572060852: Creativity and the Diamonic

Live Recording - Two Cassettes

May defines the diamonic as any natural function in the individual which has the power of taking over the personality - sex and eros, anger and rage, and the craving of power. He discusses the curious phenomenon that a creative person always lives with the daimonic and produces partly by virtue of the daimonic. He says that in psychotherapy and the creative process, it is necessary to confront and wrestle with the daimonic, an even more difficult process because society makes a religion of suppressing it.

Note: The inherent difficulities of live recordings and the age of some of the recordings can cause variations in the sound quality.

ROLLO MAY (1909-1994): Philosopher and psychoanalyst who was one of the prime influences in broadening the perspectives of psychology and psychiatry. Among the books he has authored are Love and Will, Man's Search for Himself, and The Courage to Create.
