HASH(0x99b5f180) out of 5 stars Fascinating Read 10 Oct. 2005
By Matt - Published on Amazon.com
Having been diagnosed with Schizophrenia at a very

young age and after a few years recently experiencing

a very good recovery I found this book to be

insightful and inspiring. The book has a series of

articles from prominent researchers on Schizophrenia

and creativity. Some interesting observations were

made such as James Ogilvie's comparison of the

Schizophrenic's experience to that of a philosopher

in that both are preoccupied with foundational questions

including creativity. I also found Louis Sass's

article and critique of Kay Redfield Jamison's book

"Touched with Fire" to be very interesting in pointing

out areas where she may have overlooked potential for

more schizophrenia spectrum styles of creativity.

Particularly he considers more modernist and

revolutionary styles of creativity that Schizophrenia

spectrum individuals might have stronger affinities

with as opposed to Bipolar spectrum individuals.

All in all a great book and it helped me understand my

experience of being a 'mad creator' better and gives hope

in efforts of recovery, especially since I am a very

young man and a music technology major. Highly reccomended for

Schizophrenia spectrum individuals, loved ones, and

just about anyone else who is interested in the

fascinating relation between creativity and madness.
