Corradi Fiumarafocuses on the unsung creativity which emerges from relationships and the world at large. She explores how understanding the operation of creative impulses in an everyday setting can crucially inform psychoanalytic clinical work. There are three main themes:
Donald Winnicott’s Psychoanalytic Will
Melanie Klein and the Other Side of Genius
Genius: Ordinary and Extraordinary.
Psychoanalysis and Creativity in Everyday Lifeadvocates an inclusionary view of human genius, and demonstrates that creativity and genius can be manifested in everyday life with the ordinary as its focus of attention. It will be key reading for psychoanalysts, psychoanalytic psychotherapists, philosophers and scholars in social studies.
