Madness in Civilization

FREE READ Þ Madness in Civilization Civilization traces the long and complex history of this affliction and our attempts to treat itBeautifully illustrated throughout Madness in Civilization takes readers from antiuity to today painting a vivid and often harrowing portrait of the different ways that cultures around the world have interpreted and responded to the seemingly irrational psychotic and insane From the Bible to Sigmund Freud from exorcism to mesmerism from Bedlam to Victorian asylums from the theory of humors to mod. O let me not be mad not mad sweet heavenKeep me in temper I would not be mad King Lear Madness in Civilization is simply one of the most stunning books I ve ever readAt various points in history insanity as depicted in Scull s book has been deemed a divine punishment a divine inspiration a diabolical possession an imbalance of humors an honorable disease of the wealthy and super intelligent a hidden infection a symptom of generational degeneracy wartime cowardice deserving of sadistic punishment a pitiful result of refrigerator mothers a chemical imbalance in the brain Throughout history madness has most often been perceived as it was by Lear as a fate worse than deathNakedness and chains humanity stripped of civilization and society s attempt to restrain the result are recurring patterns as are society s repeated oscillations between locking up the mad often in deplorable conditions and turning them loose in the community to fend for themselves Those who feel for today s homeless mentally ill will feel sympathy for the 12th century madmen who were left at large free to wander and to beg at the mercy of a community that might respond with taunts and jeers not to mention violenceWhile mad relatives of the wealthy were hidden away in isolated unregulated and often corrupt hospitals compared to tombs for the living to avoid family scandal one didn t even need to be insane to be confined to a madhouse Political opponents of powerful figures were shut up indefinitely in madhouses under lettres de cachet and women were often confined to madhouses or asylums for being sexual or inconvenientWith the appearance of terror neurosis or shell shock in WWI doctors explored the link between traumatic experience and insanity that could produce physical symptoms such as paralysis or blindness But for the most part mental illness remained inexplicableUnsurprisingly Scull mentions the Nazi T4 eugenics program to prevent hereditarily diseased offspring but surprisingly he also mentions that as recently as the 1930s the US Supreme Court overwhelmingly 8 1 condoned the sterilization of the mentally ill against their willThe discovery of syphilis a biological disease as a common cause of insanity suggested that madness was rooted in the body and doctors turned to biological cures Treatments included insulin shock electroshock and lobotomization The gentle talking cure of Freudian psychoanalysis gained popularity with celebrities and their followers only to fall away as psychiatric drugs became readily availableand heavily promoted by drug companies to doctors The publication of the Diagnostic Statistical Manual in 1952 attempted to standardize diagnosis criteria and recommend particular drugs for their treatmentOne of the most enlightening and disturbing chapters focuses on the modern situation A Psychiatric RevolutionMany Americans myself included believed that the mass discharge of the mentally ill into the community beginning in the mid 20th century was due to the emergence of effective psychotropic drugs But Scull makes a convincing argument that the real reason was that the state hospitals were becoming too expensive for the states to maintain and once some sort of medication however effective or ineffective in addition to federal support programs such as Supplemental Security Income gave states a seemingly reasonable excuse to shut down their mental hospitals they did without regard for the fates of those cast out and who often ended up homeless or in prisonAn inuiry in the 1980s UK memorably determined that care for the mentally ill was a poor relation everybody s distant relative but nobody s babyScull is skeptical of the pharmaceutical industry and its claims of overwhelming success even as it overlooks numerous debilitating side effects and even heartbreaking failures such as increased suicides of adolescents and children prescribed Paxil and other SSRI drugs He is particularly critical of DSM ties to pharmaceutical companies and of the recent epidemics of newly coined mental illnesses that were in the past considered merely elements of everyday life but now can be conveniently treated with newly discovered or adapted drugs In cases of serious psychosis the focus Scull says seems to be on ongoing symptom management rather than cure because chronic conditions are chronically profitableHe seems condoning of psychoanalysis without unnecessary supplementation with pharmaceuticals and its consideration of the individual as a person with uniue experiences and a place in society Madness is one of those brilliant books that lead the reader to seek out The bibliography is extensive but readers will also be inspired to seek out the novels paintings plays operas and films mentioned in the book Hamlet and Ophelia Lear and Macbeth get their due as do Tess Durbeyfield Esther Greenwood and the heroines of the skeptical Tennessee Williams but noticeably not the characters of the hyper Freudian Eugene O NeillAlthough modern Far and Middle Eastern accounts of mental illness are noticeably absent the work is an unusually compelling panorama of mental illness and its treatment in the Western worldAs far as nonfiction books go I am generally a borrower not a buyer But I will buy this oneOn a side note the cover design is one of the cleverest I ve ever seen A long string of text spirals into the center of the front cover while the title on the spine seems to run out of room but keeps on going and when it gets to the end it goes around the bend a euphemism for going insane A Rose in Winter generational degeneracy wartime cowardice deserving of sadistic punishment a pitiful result of refrigerator mothers a chemical imbalance in the brain
