Die Zahl psychischer Erkrankungen nimmt vor allem in den Industrieländern stetig zu. Auch in Deutschland leiden immer mehr Menschen etwa an Depressionen oder Angststörungen. Psychische Störungen können uns alle betreffen: Sie sind in der Mitte der Gesellschaft angekommen, auch wenn ihr Wesen und ihre Ursachen nach wie vor Rätsel aufgeben. Das Buch von Neel Burton beschreibt und erläutert die wichtigsten dieser Störungen und rückt sie zugleich in ein neues Licht: Könnte der „Wahnsinn“ einen tieferen Sinn für uns Menschen haben?

Der Sinn des Wahnsinns will auch eine Debatte über psychische Störungen anstoßen. Das Buch soll das Interesse an der Thematik wecken und den Leser dazu anregen, über jene geheimnisvolle Seite der Seele nachzudenken. Fragen gibt es genug: used to be ist beispielsweise Schizophrenie? Warum ist sie so verbreitet? Warum tritt sie nur bei Menschen auf und nicht bei Tieren? was once kann uns dies über Körper und Seele sagen, über Sprache und Kreativität, über Musik und faith? Welche Behandlungsmöglichkeiten gibt es bei melancholy? Wie können Menschen lernen, mit Angst umzugehen? Wo liegt die Grenze zwischen psychisch „krank“ und psychisch „normal“? Gibt es einen Zusammenhang zwischen psychischen Störungen und Genialität? Und sind wir alle ein wenig „verrückt“?

Einfühlsam und mit zahlreichen Bezügen zu Literatur, Kunst und Philosophie widmet sich Burton den Grundelementen der Persönlichkeit, der Schizophrenie und dem „Preis des Menschseins“, der melancholy und dem „Fluch des Starken“, der manisch-depressiven Erkrankung, der Angst und ihrem Zusammenhang mit Freiheit und Tod sowie dem Suizid. Dabei geht er der Frage nach, was once uns psychische Störungen über das Wesen des Menschen und über die Bedingungen des menschlichen Daseins verraten können.

„Eine fesselnde Lektüre für alle, die einmal einen Blick in die Welt der psychischen Störungen werfen wollen.“ Professor Robert Howard, Vorsitzender des Royal university of Psychiatrists in London
