After a concise description of the meanings of the word ''art'', with special reference to Kant's and Jung's thought, the authors examine the mechanisms that, according to the Freudian paradigm, govern human behaviour, on the one hand in an attempt to adjust to the outside world, and on the other with the aim of protecting emotions, wishes and motivational requirements. Seen in this context, life itself may represent an artistic moment, compliance with a norm, or lastly the expression of a mental disorder.
