Product description

Review

Wholly fascinating..."Madness and Modernism" is rooted in a thorough knowledge of the psychological literature, but [Sass] also draws on an extensive acquaintance with 19th and 20th-century art, literature and philosophy...Powerful, lucid and original...Should revolutionise our thinking about the workings of the human mind. -- Iain McGilchrist "London Review of Books"
