    • Explores notions of madness at the institutional, conceptual, metaphoric and practical levels
    • Discusses the practice and function of psychiatric care facilities
    • A publication of the Historisches Kolleg in Munich

    Aims and Scope

    The rise of psychiatry in the second half of the 19th century was accompanied by a number of dislocations. Modern artistic tendencies, deviant sexual behavior, and other maladaptive social behavior patterns were psycho-pathologized, and the notion of insanity took on new connotations. The book discusses these diverse phenomena in an original and insightful way with reference to institutional, conceptual, and case examples.
