Product description

Along with Adler and Jung, Otto Rank was one of the intellectual giants in the inner circle around Sigmund Freud. "Art and Artist" was first published in 1932, after he had broken ranks with Freud and was living in Paris. Rank's thought has had an important influence on many twentieth-century writers and thinkers, beginning with Henry Miller and Anais Nin. "Art and Artist" explores all the complex aspects of the human urge to create, in terms not only of individual works of art but of religion, mythology and social institutions as well. Based firmly on Rank's knowledge of psychology and psychoanalysis, it ranges widely through anthropology and cultural history.

'Art and Artist' explores the human urge to create in all its complex aspects, in terms not only of individual works of art but of religion, mythology, and social institutions as well. Based firmly on Rank's knowledge of psychology and psychoanalysis, it ranges widely through anthropology and cultural history, reaching beyond psychology to a broad understanding of human nature.
