Alienation

Estrangement from other people, society, work, God, or oneself.

As Currie (1974: 9) points out, the "concept of alienation [...] includes the propositions that the self is divided from the self and that the self is divided from the world. These prepositions establish the universality of the concept of alienation, because the mind seems to reflect upon itself and upon the world as objects and, therefore, as things separated - 'alienated' - from itself." Creativity is often considered one of the ways to overcome alienation and genius is the actor in this process.
