Sadly psychiatry reacted adversely to Freud – his flaws were too extensive, his ‘anatomy’ too rigid and too singular, and even his method of treatment too inflexible and longwinded. Accordingly Freud proved a false god. The rigidity, precision and reproducibility that this branch of the medical profession so craves, which Freud appeared initially to offer, has never materialised, and there are sound philosophical even logical grounds to indicate it never will. The human mind is the most creative, delightful, fluid and inventive entity in the entire cosmos – it does not take kindly to regimentation, dissection, anatomisation or any of the other false structures which a beleaguered profession might wish to inflict upon it.
It’s hard to get your head round it, but somehow because there has never been a pill to treat Personality Disorders, then by an unconscionable sleight of hand, they are edged out of the psychiatric arena. Personality then becomes something you are born with, and therefore not something that medical science can or indeed should tamper with. The fact that emotional distress entails enormous suffering, indeed agony, fades. Not for the first time, the psychiatric view of reality takes precedence over painful hard-edged humanity – with unhappy, and unhealthy consequences on every side.
In discussing these medical prejudices with Robert Whitaker, whose work was a substantial inspiration for this book, he pointed out that it had first arisen with Kraepelin in 1899, with his concept of Dementia Praecox, or premature madness. I surmised that most of his cases at that time were likely to have been syphilitic, which gives rise in Tertiary Syphilis to the well known General Paralysis of the Insane, and which, once established could well be regarded as permanent, with permanent brain damage at its core.
