We Are All Mad

Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses theology and schizophrenia as represented in the image of the black sun, which includes a reading of Freud's case study of Judge Schreber along with insights from R. D. Laing, Gilles Deleuze, and Jacques Derrida. Schizophrenia becomes a problem that requires a broadly theological schizoanalysis, rather than simply a medical condition.

Keywords: theology; schizophrenia; schizoanalysis; black sun; Judge Schreber; Freud; R. D. Laing; Gilles Deleuze; Jacques Derrida
