Genius: The Natural History of Creativity presents a novel theory of genius and creativity that is based on the personality characteristics of creative persons and geniuses. Starting with the fact that genius and creativity are frequently related to psychopathology, this book brings together many different lines of research into the subject. Professor Eysenck provides experimental evidence to support these theories in their application to creativity. He considers the role of intelligence, social status, gender, and many other factors that have been linked with genius and creativity. His theory traces creativity from DNA through personality to special cognitive processes to genius. The book will generate a great deal of interest in the fields of psychology, psychiatry, philosophy, and sociology.

This book examines the first generation of artists in Britain to define themselves as history painters, attempting what then was considered to be art's most exalted category. Seizing on the new critical discourse of original genius as championed in new books such as Edward Young's Conjectures on Original Composition of 1759, they rejected tradition in favor of looking to "the god within." In reconfiguring the nature of history painting, they went on to redefine the role of the artist as well. In doing so, they heralded the beginnings of the Romantic movement.

Genius Genes: How Asperger Talents Changed the World proposes that many famous historical figures had an autistic mind-style, and that this should color the way we approach autism today Arguing that highly creative people are largely “born and not made,” the authors of Genius Genes: How Asperger Talents Changed the World present case studies of the lives of 21 famous individuals, tying their personalities, talents and lifestyles to the major characteristics of Asperger Syndrome. Subjects range from the well-known to some more obscure, including political/military figures (Thomas Jefferson, Thomas 'Stonewall' Jackson, Bernard Law Montgomery and Charles de Gaulle), mathematicians (Archimedes, Charles Babbage, Paul Erdös, Norbert Wiener, David Hilbert, and Kurt Gödel), scientists (Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, Albert Einstein, Nikola Tesla, Henry Cavendish and Gregor Mendel), writers (Gerard Manley Hopkins and H. G. Wells), plus maverick aviator Charles Lindbergh, psychologist John Broadus Watson and sexologist Alfred C. Kinsey.This book's chief importance lies in challenging – from a fresh perspective – an often negative perception of autism and Asperger Syndrome by demonstrates that many persons with autism have lived rich, complex and productive lives, and that their intelligence contributed hugely to shaping the world that we now know.

Over 100 illustrations accompany writings that rangefrom Francis Bacon to Jane Austin; from the early 1600s, when Englishmen began to determine theirown concept and form of the garden, through the first half of the eighteenth century when itsdistinctive feature emerged, to the heyday of the landscape garden under "Capability" Brown and thereactions to his pure formalism under Repton and Loudon in the 1800s. This edition contains a newintroduction and bibliography covering the many developments in garden history during the last dozenyears.John Dixon Hunt is Professor in the School of English and American Studies at the Universityof East Anglia and editor of the International Journal of Garden History. Peter Willis, anarchitect, is reader in the History of Architecture at the University of Newcastle.

In early nineteenth-century Britain, there was unprecedented interest in the subject of genius, as well as in the personalities and private lives of creative artists. This was also a period in which literary magazines were powerful arbiters of taste, helping to shape the ideological consciousness of their middle-class readers. Romantic Genius and the Literary Magazine considers how these magazines debated the nature of genius and how and why they constructed particular creative artists as geniuses. Romantic writers often imagined genius to be a force that transcended the realms of politics and economics. David Higgins, however, shows in this text that representations of genius played an important role in ideological and commercial conflicts within early nineteenth-century literary culture. Furthermore, Romantic Genius and the Literary Magazine bridges the gap between Romantic and Victorian literary history by considering the ways in which Romanticism was understood and sometimes challenged by writers in the 1830s. It not only discusses a wide range of canonical and non-canonical authors, but also examines the various structures in which these authors had to operate, making it an interesting and important book for anyone working on Romantic literature.
