SZASZ, Thomas S.
The Manufacture of Madness.
A Comparative Study of the Inquisition and the Mental Health Movement.
First Edition. “For Szasz… mental illness is not a disease, whose nature is being elucidated by science; it is rather a myth, fabricated by psychiatrists for reasons of professional advancement and endorsed by society because it sanctions easy solutions for problem people.” [Porter Madness p.2]
