DescriptionThis work analyzes the insanity of world civilisation, pointing out how delusions such as racism, sexism, homophobia, regionalism, ableism, speciesism, and the slavery to the beauty standard all stem from a ""schizophrenic dissociation"" of the individual from others and from the self. The madness of ""sane"" society is paralleled by the author's own diagnosable madness, which he uses to illustrate the dynamics of the dissociation, and then suggests possible treatments for society's illness. Part analysis, part history, part personal narrative, An Ethics of Sanity offers insight from the madness of one individual, driven mad by a mad society. About the AuthorSid Prise is a writer and activist born in 1972 in Chicago.
