Australian Left Review

Abstract

AT FIRST GLANCE it might seem that Anti-psychiatry, described in the two articles following, has nothing to do with the concerns of the "ordinary” person and very little to do with revolutionaries. Such a superficial glance would, however, be completely wrong. For in fact, the theories and conclusions of the anti-psychiatry school (Laing, Cooper and Esterson arc its main proponents) are crucial to an understanding of society and its sicknesses. For the layman, anti-psychiatry exposes some hitherto hidden features of his everyday life and his interaction with others, particularly in his family.
