    Excerpt:

    Why study creativity and creative processes? We are at a point in history where we possess far more systematic information about psychological approaches and psychological functioning—small as it still is in an absolute sense—than any of the thinkers possessed who approached this topic earlier. The theory of creativity and of the creative process presented here pertains in one respect to an enduring scientific achievement of Freud’s, the understanding of the structure of dreams, and it is consistent both with psychoanalytic knowledge about personality function and with experimental psychological and psychiatric approaches. Now, with our knowledge and tools regarding the creative process, we can contribute to man’s deep understanding of himself. (756 pp.)
