Being sane has long been defined simply as that bland and
nebulous state of not being mentally ill. While writings on madness
fill entire libraries, until now no one has thought to engage
exclusively with the idea of sanity.
In a society governed by indulgence and excess, madness is the
state of mind we identify with most keenly. Though ultimately
destructive, it is often credited as the wellspring of genius,
individuality, and self-expression. Sanity, on the other hand,
confounds us. One of the world's most respected psychoanalysts and
original thinkers, Adam Phillips redresses this historical
imbalance. He strips our lives back to essentials, focusing on how
we--as human beings, parents, lovers, as people to whom work
matters--can make space for a sane and well-balanced attitude to
living. In a world saturated by tales of dysfunction and suffering,
he offers a way forward that is as down-to-earth and realistic as
it is uplifting and hopeful.
