Ideology and Insanity: Essays on the Psychiatric Dehumanization of Man

Autor Thomas Szasz
en Limba Engleză Paperback – feb 1991

This book is a collection of the earliest essays of Thomas Szasz, in which he staked out his position on "the nature, scope, methods, and values of psychiatry." On each of these issues, he opposed the official position of the psychiatric profession. Where conventional psychiatrists saw themselves diagnosing and treating mental illness, Szasz saw them stigmatizing and controlling persons; where they saw hospitals, Szasz saw prisons; where they saw courageous professional advocacy of individualism and freedom, Szasz saw craven support of collectivism and oppression.
