And vice versa: unifying principles in psychology and psychopathology (for example, turning passivity into activity) are correlated with the details of form in the various arts. Therefore, the book is as suitable for a survey course as for in-depth study, depending on a readers inclination or a teachers intent. Although of special value to those in the arts and/or psychology/psychiatry/psychoanalysis, the book is addressed to a general college or post-graduate level audience interested in the creative process.
