Abstract

Why is it that all those who have become eminent in philosophy or politics or poetry or the arts are clearly of an atrabilious temperament? So is phrased Aristotle’s theory of melancholia, which forges the link between creativity and mental illness. It hypothesized for the first time that individuals who possess any form of genius are prone to depression more than the average person.
