Let me tell you a story about Lacan’s objet petit a (“lowercase- other”): an auto-ethnographical investigation of a creative person’s experience of writing an academic article on the creative process
This article is an auto-ethnographical narrative that, through the splintering of the ego, views the creative process reflectively and reflexively. It includes an exploratory investigation of the concept “Other” as it appears in three creative texts created as part of the “Tracking creative creatures” project.
