Reading The Politics of Experience is in itself an extraordinary experience. Here is an original and exciting work that takes the reader into the author's own mind with stunning honesty. Laing leads us to experience the kind of emotions often linked to the taking of drugs, showing insights and perceptions which have all too often relegated to the domain of madness. R.D. Laing is one of England's most impressive and original psychoanalysts, whose work on new methods of treating schizophrenia has won widespread praise. In this book, Dr. Laing takes us beyond teh usual theories about mental illness and alienation.
