The Sublime Object of Psychiatry

Schizophrenia in Clinical and Cultural Theory

Angela Woods

International Perspectives in Philosophy and Psychiatry

  • On the 100th anniversary of schizophrenia, argues that this illness is one whose potential for fascination is deeply bound up with its apparently mysterious, ineffable, perhaps ultimately unknowable nature, hence providing a new perspective on the conceptual frameworks within which this diagnostic category has been and is being developed
  • The first comprehensive study of schizophrenia as a metaphor in cultural theory, filling a major gap in scholarship on this topic
  • Will appeal to a broad audience across philosophy, psychiatry, and cultural theory
