Historical Who is Who » LAING, R D
Psychiatrist specialising in individual as a family construct. Controversial for his critique of established treatment methods in medical psychology - drugs and shocks, and his claim that there is personal meaning in 'madness' which requires understanding. Authentic morality owes more to existential insight than to bourgeois expectation.
