This work is available on its own or as part of the volume set Selected Works of R D Laing, This remarkable autobiography charts the subtle horrors of Laing s own upbringing in a resolutely respectable Scottish family in the s The author s lucid and witty prose offers some unforgettable personal experiences and a host of cultural political and professional insights as he reflects on the growing unease he came to feel in his role as psychiatrist in a society destroying itself by violence masquerading as love, In The Divided Self Laing contrasted the experience of the ontologically secure person with that of a person who cannot take the realness aliveness autonomy and identity of himself and others for granted and who consequently contrives strategies to avoid losing his self Laing explains how we all exist in the world as beings defined by others who carry a model of us in their heads just as we carry models of them in our heads In later writings he often takes this to deeper levels laboriously spelling out how A knows that B knows that A knows that B knows Our feelings and motivations derive very much from this condition of being in the world in the sense of existing for others who exist for us Without this we suffer ontological insecurity a condition often expressed in terms of being dead by people who are clearly still physically alive br br This watershed work aimed to make madness comprehensible and in doing so revolutionized the way we perceive mental illness Using case studies of patients he had worked with psychiatrist R D Laing argued that psychosis is not a medical condition but an outcome of the divided self or the tension between the two personas within us one our authentic private identity and the other the false sane self that we present to the world Laing s radical approach to insanity offered a rich existential analysis of personal alienation and made him a cult figure in the s yet his work was most significant for its humane attitude which put the patient back at the centre of treatment R D Laing one of the best known psychiatrists of modern times was born in Glasgow Scotland br br This work is available on its own or as part of the volume set iSelected Works of R D Laing, The book is made of bits of journals bits of lectures memories meditations some impenetrably abstract amp logically involuted some embarrassingly speculative amp poetic among which one may wander at will But in content it s new evidence that Laing s moved on deeper into himself deeper into the mystery of life It s a meditation without answers philosophical personal amp biological on the question Who am I Perhaps the most striking part of it is the personal Laing s no longer talking only about patients or people in trouble but about himself His own quite bleak amp repressed early history is told with a bald plainness that suggests both sadness amp harsh humor He moves from the conundrum conventionally called the facts of life our origin in sexual reproduction into more bizarre territory the possibility documented by incidents in therapy that we remember are haunted by amp reenact our conception implantation fetal life amp birth the loss of the cord amp placenta that were part of us He relates odd things that have happened to his mind amp odd encounters with others that hint at the vast mysteries lying iceberg like beyond consciousness The whole is informed by an implicit compassion that turns explicit in an attack on heartless science unaware of its own unconscious sadistic motives Despite its flights amp obscurities this is a real contribution to the literature of wonder rich disorderly suggestive inconclusive amp humane
