A much needed text for psychology and Foucault studies. The reason why madness has been historically marginalized since the 18th century has to do with a confluence of discourses premised upon state-racism, the prioritizing of reason, and the emergence of empirical forms of epistemology. A first step towards deconstructing disciplinary forms of individuation that underpin a nefarious sort of rationalized power dynamic.
