Description du produit

Revue de presse

"as illuminating as it is compendious...a magisterial survey."--John Gray, "New Statesman"

"I've only just started Andrew Scull's "Madness in Civilization: A Cultural History of Insanity," but already it's taught me a lot about unreason, in all its guises. . . . The in in Scull's title is a nice reproach to Foucault; we like to think of insanity as existing apart from, or before, the constructs of society--and certainly we try to put it there--but Scull's history unpacks centuries of our cultural baggage about madness, arguing that it's 'indelibly part of civilization, not located outside it.'"--Dan Piepenbring, "Paris Review"

"[a] vast and rather brilliant book."--Matt Haig, "Independent"

"Scull s knowledge of music and art, cultural change, medicine, religion, and politics make this a great achievement in psychiatric history [a] dynamic, readable chronicle and excellent reference."--"Library Journal," starred review"

""Madness in Civilization" is a landmark study, as authoritative as it is readable in its account of the devastatingly sad understory of human society. It's enraging, intensely unsparing reading, but it's a masterpiece." ."--Steve Donoghue, "Open Letters Monthly"

""Madness in Civilization" entirely deserves the applause it has received. This is the best single volume yet written on the cultural history of madness, and it is also the synoptic masterpiece of Scull's career. . . . [A] rich, lucid, outstandingly good book, one that merits a place on the shelves of any practitioner, sufferer, or interested common reader."--Richard Barnett, "Lancet Psychiatry"

"Sociologist and historian Andrew Scull is too rigorous a scholar to indulge in polemics. Instead, Mr. Scull has set himself the task of providing his readers with a clear, engaged and global overview of madness from the ancient world to the present . . . [his] tone is elegant; his scholarship, immaculate. The story he tells is riveting." "--Joanna Bourke, Wall Street Journal

"Scull's knowledge of music and art, cultural change, medicine, religion, and politics make this a great achievement in psychiatric history [a] dynamic, readable chronicle and excellent reference."-- --Library Journal

An 'epic study'--Daily Telegraph

'A comprehensive study…factual but never dry, witty without being fanciful.' --The Lady

Présentation de l'éditeur

This ambitious volume, worldwide in scope and ranging from antiquity to the present, examines the human encounter with Unreason in all its manifestations, the challenges it poses to society and our responses to it. In twelve chapters organized chronologically from the Bible to Freud, from exorcism to mesmerism, from Bedlam to Victorian asylums, from the theory of humours to modern pharmacology, Andrew Scull writes compellingly about madness, its meanings, its consequences and our attempts to understand and treat it. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché.
