FEATURES : Issues in Creativity and Madness, Part Three: Who Cares?
The last of a three-part series on creativity and madness, this article considers the impact of the "mad creative" myth on creatives themselves. A survey of 35 jazz musicians suggests that while they are aware of the myth, they are disinclined to dwell on it, managing to derive satisfaction from their unconventional and difficult career choice despite the traditional public belief in their inherent pathology. Issues of motivation, rewards, and working conditions are also considered.
