The Divided Self

An Existential Study in Sanity and Madness

by R. D. Laing

Penguin Books, 1973, paperback

Very Good Condition, previous owners inscription on synopsis page, age-toned pages, small dents in side fore-edge (see photographs)

"Dr Laing's first purpose is to make madness and the process of going mad comprehensible.  In this, with case studies of schizophrenic patients, he succeeds brilliantly, but he does more; through a vision of sanity and madness as 'degrees of conjunction and dis-junction between two persons where the one is sane by common consent' he offers a rich existential analysis of personal alienation."
