In my thesis I am looking at more of an historical approach when dealing with the roots and the side-effects of the oppression of creativity. I have discovered through my research that the underlying issues have deep historical origins and the side-effects our society live with daily have been plaguing us for many centuries and have left many scars that will not easily fade. I rely heavily on autobiographical enquiry as philosophy that has been grounded in my own creative (mostly musical) experiences. I have chosen to reflect mainly on these models in an attempt to allow my authentic voice to clearly be heard as my opinions are based on my lived experiences (not contemporary philosopher's experiences) and the awareness that being creative has revealed to me about my personal struggles living amongst this historically rooted oppression and my struggle to maintain authenticity and autonomy in our current socio-cultural circumstances.
