Rewriting the Self - History, Memory and Narrative

[Cy Twombly's "Venus"]

Rewriting the Self - History, Memory and Narrative

Professor Freeman's teaching and research interests include history and philosophy of psychology, the psychology of the self, and the psychology of art and creativity. His first book, Rewriting the Self: History, Memory, Narrative (Routledge, 1993), inquires into the process by which people reconstruct the meaning and significance of past experience. In order to answer the question, who am I?, a person turns to the past and, from the vantage point of the present, seeks to make sense of the movement of her/his life. The self created in the process of narrating is thus to be regarded not as some substantial "thing" but rather as a series of continuous tellings and re-tellings, issuing from the work of the narrative imagination. A second book, Finding the Muse: A Sociopsychological Inquiry into the Conditions of Artistic Creativity (Cambridge, 1993), explores the lives of a group of aspiring American artists, focusing especially on problems of creativity as they relate to such issues as the mystique of the modern artist, the fashioning of artistic identity, and the limits and possibilities of modern art itself.
