Ten Berge, Jos
Journal of Creative Behavior, v33 n4 p257-76 4th Qtr 1999
This article reviews international studies from the 1940s to the 1970s concerning drugs and creativity. The notion of drugs "dictating" or "liberating" the intoxicated artist is criticized by discussing the importance of set and setting. It is proposed that intentional drug use can be seen as a form of disinhibiting technique. (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
