Fine Arts as Therapy: Plato's Teaching Organized and Discussed

   
By Constantine Cavarnos

“Dr. Cavarnos traces the historical origins in Plato's teachings and gives both the health specialist and the general reader the Western point of view that human expression which is organized to produce a response of aesthetic pleasure can simultaneously contribute to healing. Consequently the use of this therapeutic modality is ultimately the responsibility of the patient, either through performance participation or through witness. This point of view stands in stark contrast to the 20th century practice of dependency upon medicines or groups.”
