The Dutch Annual of Psychoanalysis. II, 1995-1996. Section 3: Applied Psychoanalysis

Jonathan Dunn

The relationship between Julius and Aldous Huxley is used to explore the psychological process of creativity. The author speculates that the surviving brothers' bond was supported by their mutually repressed, guilt-laden murderous impulses toward a third brother who committed suicide. However, the reparative motive to counter fantasied or actual destruction is not sufficient to explain creativity. While aggression is connected to the creative act, a separate, expansive urge to purely create is also at work, as is a loving curiosity that constrains destructive intentions. The hallmark of creativity is a unique synthesis of opposing aspects of phenomena; an ability to see the unique way that contradictory elements can be integrated. The author also discusses the relationship of creativity to the act of thinking and to the nature of thought.
