Beschreibung:

Originally published in 1988, Anthony Storr's bestselling meditation on the creative individual's need for solitude has become a classic.A pre-eminent work in self-help and popular psychology literature, Solitude was seminal in challenging the psychological paradigm that interpersonal relationships of an intimate kind are the chief, if not the only, source of human happiness. Indeed, most self-help literature still places relationships at the center of human existence. Lucid and lyrical, Storr's book argues that solitude ranks alongside relationships in its impact on an individuals well-being and productivity, as well as on society's progress and health. Citing numerous examples of brilliant scholars and artistsfrom Beethoven and Kant to Anne Sexton and Beatrix Potterhe argues that solitary activity is essential not only for geniuses, but often for the average person as well. For nearly three decades, readers have found inspiration and renewal in Storr's erudite, compassionate vision of the human experienceand the benefits and joy of solitude.
