Summary
Dr Laing's first purpose is to make madness & the process of going mad comprehensible. In this he succeeds, but he does more: through a vision of sanity & madness as 'degrees of conjunction & disjunction between two persons where the one is sane by common consent' he offers a rich existential analysis of personal alienation
