Destruction of the self or of creativity: these two key notions in the book are particularly original and allow us to understand phenomena such as "radicalisation" and the spiral of violence.
A lively and illuminating perspective on the history of a discipline that is still young. Unusual reflections on the future of treatment for psychiatric illness, based on past mistakes. Suggestions for helping the near future to become the Golden Age of psychiatry.
