The Politics of Experience
by R. D. Laing

AVAILABILITY: Readily available

Publication Date: August 1983
Publisher: Pantheon
Binding: Paperback
Topics:

Description: Unorthodox to some, brilliantly original to others, 'The Politics of Experience' goes beyond the usual theories of mental illness and alienation, and makes a convincing case for the 'madness of morality.'

Laing attacks accepted assumptions about the nature of "normality" with a challenging view of the mental sickness built into our society.

Review(s): "Stunning.... I am overpowered by the challenges he dares to make to what has become a rather conventional profession. I can only hope that he will be heard, and heard respectfully." - Robert Coles, New Republic

"R.D. Laing is at his most wickedly iconoclastic in this eloquent assault on conventional morality. Unorthodox to some, brilliantly original to others, 'The Politics of Experience' goes beyond the usual theories of mental illness and alienation, and makes a convincing case for the 'madness of morality.' ....No one who reads it will remain unaffected." - Rollo May, Saturday Review
