Psychiatric Hegemony: A Marxist Theory of Mental Illness Pdf

Psychiatric Hegemony: A Marxist Theory of Mental Illness Pdf This publication delivers a thorough Marxist review of the work of mental health, demonstrating the way the prerogatives of neoliberal capitalism to get effective, self-governing taxpayers have enabled the discourse on mental illness to enlarge past the psychiatric association into several previously untouched regions of private and public life such as the home, school and the office. Through historical and contemporary analysis of psy-professional knowledge-claims and clinics, Bruce Cohen reveals how the expansion of psychiatric jurisdiction may only be fully realized via the orderly theorising of power relations within capitalist society.
From schizophrenia and hysteria into Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Borderline Personality Disorder, from turning chairs and lobotomies to shock antidepressants and treatment, from the incarceration of working class girls in the nineteenth century into the torture of prisoners of their’war on terror’ from the twenty-first, Psychiatric Hegemony is an intriguing account of psychological health ideology in neoliberal society.
