In European thought there had been a tendency since Plato's concept on mania and Artistotle's on melancholy that we derive the sources of artistic creativity from beyond the boundaries of normality. From the i9th - century following medicalization and theories of Lombroso and others - the „genius and madness"-belief became current and popular. From the age of romanticism when artistic existence happened to be an important form of revolt against social conventions that repress freedom, the artists tried different ways to exceed the limits of conscious ego to get inspired, including „dreamhunting" intensive emotional relationships (love, friendship), simulation of madness and experiences with drugs. The differnt schools of psychoanalysis, that developed the dynamic approach of the personality, had studied the connections between artistic creativity and normál and pathologic personality functioning for a century now, while the insprative effects of different drugs were inquired by writers and psychologists like Aldous Huxley or Stanislav Grof. In my paper i refer to the life and works of some extravagant artists like Salvador Dali, who became outstanding painter in spite of his psychopathological involvement, or Géza Csáth, whose drug-abuse led to the erosion of verbal creativity and in the end to totál disintegration.
