The march of science in explaining human nature continues.
In Touched With Fire, Jamison marshals a tremendous amount of evidence for the proposition that most artistic geniuses were (and are) manic depressives.
This is a book of interest to scientists, psychologists, and artists struggling with the age-old question of whether psychological suffering is an essential component of artistic creativity.
Anyone reading this book closely will be forced to conclude that it is.
Very Highly Recommended..
