Bottling Miraculous Creativity

2009-02-12

Re–blog from the Morning News.

Watch this beautiful video of Elizabeth Gilbert’s lecture held at TED. Here she questions the western cultures egocentric view on the creative spirit. Her anxiety drove her way back into history and the ancient view of the genius.

I often talk about the Roman Genius with friends. Few know about it but everyone appreciate it. It seems many creative people find comfort in of these type of myths and I gladly promote them.

I first read about it in the Italian philosopher Giorgio Agamben’s collection of essays Profanazioni. It’s a really good book and I really recommend it.

And I really recommend any creative person to take a closer look on the ancient view about the Genius. I’m sure it will help you through some rough times.
