SURVIVING THE MADNESS OF MENTAL HOSPITALS AND SIMILAR PLACES
In this eBook, Stan Papenfus seeks to discover what makes it possible for one group of people to define and dominate another, what kind of communication takes place between them and how this relationship can be transformed.
Apartheid South Africa was his existential starting point. The 'Puzzle Factory' of mental hospitals is used as an analogy for the way people are classified and controlled, so being deprived of the common humanity we share. To counteract all such dehumanisation he puts forward a 'survivors guide' for personal and mutual empowerment.
