Abstract: The arts are a ritual manifestation of creative activity in human existence, and therefore belong within the purview of music therapy. The special role of music in connection with psychic integration and continuity is described in order to introduce the theoretical concept of a music-oriented psychotherapy and to explain the principle of crystallization. This principle reveals the meaning of music in its relationship to all aesthetic functions in the life of human beings. (author)
