Making Minds and Madness
This is a bold book from a leading intellectual, the third in a trilogy Nationalism: Five Roads to Modernity and The Spirit of Capitalism: Nationalism and Economic Growth , and it covers a lot of territory — history, sociology, philosophy, psychology, psychiatry, and neuroscience. Our society pays a psychological price for grinding out individuals instead of divine light. The way we treat mental problems and I think try to recapture some of our awe is by looking inside our own skulls. The analytic skills Greenfeld employs in each of these domains allows her to present a much more complicated argument than the social construction of X.

Here, from a historian of psychiatry, are some strikingly original suggestions for understanding traumatic neurosis, seduction theory, multiple personality, and much more of the ground first plowed by Charcot in Paris and Freud in Vienna. A dazzling intellectual effort. Making Minds and Madness greatly advances our understanding of why psychiatry continues to falter as a science, and it challenges us to devise psychological thinking able to circumvent the knotty epistemological challenges of reducing mental suffering. He is the author of highly influential books on the theory and history of psychiatry and psychoanalysis and co-author of the best-selling Le Livre Noir de la Psychanalyse The Black Book of Psychoanalysis.

This outlook is familiar to medical anthropologists, transcultural psychiatrists, philosophers of science and others. To accomplish this, one has to be not just a historian, but a sleuth, interrogator, and genealogist. Borch-Jacobsen is undaunted by the challenge of demonstrating logical fallacies in arguments that have been accepted and lacquered over during the past century, and he is unremittingly skeptical of and ironic towards his quarry, most particularly Sigmund Freud. He sets out to prove this assertion by interrogating central concepts in psychiatry, from psychic shocks to the unconscious, and by tracing back to the source point of several diagnoses to demonstrate how these were either co-invented by psychoanalysts and patients or suggested to patients by their analysts and made popular through bestselling books, patient advocacy groups, or the self-interested promotion of the therapeutic community itself. Along the way, the theories of many of the major figures of nineteenth and early twentieth century psychotherapy are evaluated and compared, giving the reader a demystified view into the intellectual context from [End Page ] which certain ideas and individuals emerged victoriously from among their competitors. Case histories of now-defunct conditions such as hysteria and multiple personality disorder illuminate how, through a sort of rigged consensus involving therapists, patients, and the public, psychological conditions have been constructed. This process is ongoing in the age of biopsychiatry and contemporary forms of psychotherapy.
