9780141047355: What is Madness?

Madness, in our culture, is defined by visibility. From the popular press to TV soaps and films, the depiction of madness always borders on the extreme: violent outbursts, fits, hallucinations. But what if madness is not exactly what we think it to be? What if it is the rule rather than the exception? And what if its defining features are not visible and dramatic but, on the contrary, highly discreet, shared by average citizens who will never come to psychiatric attention? What if, in other words, there is a difference between being mad and going mad?Beginning and ending with the case of Harold Shipman - a mass-murderer so apparently 'normal' that some of his patients said they would still be treated by him even after his conviction - psychoanalyst Darian Leader explores the idea of discreet madness, and argues that it is only through revising our concept of what madness is that we will have the tools to help those who have gone mad to rebuild their lives.

Review:

In this important, lucid book, psychoanalyst asks us revise the concept of madness . . . Leader is as much a philosopher as a psychoanalyst and his ideas are engrossing and enlightening * Metro * Wonderful * Bookseller * The mad . . . have been segregated and often confined; for fear, perhaps, that they will contaminate the rest of us. But as Darain Leader brilliantly shows, things are never so simple -- Hanif Kureshi * Independent * What is Madness? is a humane and timely book * New Statesman * [Says] something that very much needs to be said * Irish Times * Leader, psychoanalyst and witty, probing writer, explores the long history of misunderstanding and mistreatment that shaped our views of mental distress. Consult him for a myth-busting diagnosis of the method in our madness * Independent *

What is Madness? is Darian Leader s probing study of madness, sanity, and everything in betweenWhat separates the sane from the mad? How hard or easy is it to tell them apart? And what if the difference is really between being mad and going mad?In this landmark work Darian Leader undermines common conceptions of madness. Through case studies like the apparently normal Harold Shipman, he shows that madness rarely conforms to standard models. What is Madness? explores the idea of quiet madness - that at times many of us live interior lives that are far from sane but allow us to function normally and unthreateningly - he argues that we must seek a new way to assess, treat and deal with those suffering mental health problems.What is Madness? is Darian Leader s radically insightful and masterfully convincing exploration of a painful, complex but endlessly fascinating area of humanity. A terrific intellectual stylist Joseph O Neill, Guardian Engrossing and enlightening . . .
