Book Review: Sanity, Madness and the Family


Sanity, Madness and the Family is R.D. Laing’s book of case studies that go towards proving his hypothesis that madness when put into the context of its surroundings may not seem quite so mad at all. Personally, I quite like his method of working, and every case study given is convincing of the validity of his theory. Even if Laingian psychology isn’t your thing, it’s a short book and the case studies make an interesting read.
