Title

Is Inner Transformation a Creative Process?

Description

After some musings, the answer to this title's question is "yes." Piechowski bases his argument on Dabrowski's theory of levels of emotional development, Maslow's concept of "self-actualization," and Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences. Within this frame he takes up three cases: Etty Hillesum, the Dutch woman whose inner growth, recorded in her diary, led her finally to volunteer for deportation by the Nazis, and to go off singing; a woman named Ashley, a fiercely devoted teacher who kept a diary recording her inner struggle for purification; and a woman known as "Peace Pilgrim" who covered 25,000 miles on goot, telling peace along the way. The article concludes on the note that inner peace is the foundation of world peace. –Editors
