Barry O’Donnell – Questions Arising from Reading Darian Leader’s What is Madness

 

THE LETTER 49 Spring 2012, pages 51-63.

 

This paper examines the representation of a psychoanalytic response to madness in the recent publication What is Madness? by Darian Leader.  Drawing from the comments of Christian Fierens and Guy Le Gaufey and guided by the treatment of Freud’s position on paranoia in Tom Dalzell’s  Freud’s Schreber Between Psychiatry and Psychoanalysis the paper finds that the representation of a psychoanalytic response raises crucial questions  for our practice and teaching as well as the constitution of our schools.

 

Keywords: diagnosis and practice, quiet madness, ordinary psychosis, the use of vignettes as a representative device
