Walking wounded: our often barbaric struggle to cure mental illness
In the late 20th century, drugs became the weapons of choice. Nineteenth-century psychiatrists had experimented on their patients using opium and marijuana, and in the 1920s barbiturates were used to induce periods of suspended animation. By the mid-20th century powerful antipsychotics were coming into play, and increasingly madness would be viewed through the lens of chemical reductionism. Meanwhile, policies of excluding mentally ill people from society were pursued in new ways. With asylums being shut down, many former inmates found themselves on the streets, and large numbers of these homeless, vulnerable people ended up in prison. In the US, Scull reports, the largest single concentration of the seriously mentally ill is in the Los Angeles County jail system.

“It is entirely possible,” Scull observes towards the end of this absorbing and often discomforting book, “that madness will after all turn out to have some of its roots in meanings, not Freudian meanings perhaps, but meanings nonetheless.” It is a tantalisingly oblique suggestion. One of the gaps in his magisterial survey is an exploration of collective madness – the propensity of large groups of human beings, even entire societies, to lose their mind. What does this recurring phenomenon tell us about the human pursuit of meaning and the fragility of what passes for sanity? Perhaps Scull will devote some of his future work to these large, unanswered questions.
