Sanity and madness

Abstract

The author sets out a schema with some underlying principles aimed at illuminating the nature of madness, how it sabotages our freedom and the deepest reasons why patients want to be sane. He claims that this is not possible without revising Freud's pleasure principle and determinism and replacing it with desire for freedom as the dominant motivating principle.
