Chapter Summary

The author's painting is integrally related to his self-transformation, and his self-transformation is integrally related to his painting. A personal program might exclude or be indifferent to art-making, music making or any other such activities. It could value process to the exclusion of products entirely; or, as in the case to the ascetic, disvalue or exclude process and product. According to the Advaita Vedantic Hindu tradition for example, the state of realization of Brahman is also a state of 'nonduality,' where all consciousness of diversity and multiplicity is negated. Larry Briskman assigns logical priority to the production of creative products. Briskman's account suggests that the uniqueness of a creative product-and thus the creativity of its person and process-is inextricably connected with historical circumstance. The issues surrounding self-transformation further complicate Briskman's taxonomy. Briskman relegates self-transformation to the subjective World 2 realm.

Keywords: creativity; Larry Briskman; nonduality; personal program; self-transformation; World 2 realm
