Samuel Gerson

The author proposes the concept of “autistic space” to delineate a type of mental functioning characterized by a deconstruction of the boundaries and contents of mental representations. This condition of relative psychic disarray may occasion severe anxieties of dedifferentiation; tolerance for such experience allows for the formation of novel linkages and reconfigurations of previous representations. The anxieties attendant on this process are seen as implicated in inhibitions in creative processes.
