Spiraling Madness (eBook)
Sobre o livro
From a medical-scientific standpoint, madness is characterized as biophysical imbalances and neurological malfunctions that cause symptoms ranging from frenzied behavior to utter insanity. But from a sociological perspective, madness is rooted in multifaceted cultural, socioeconomic, and environmental circumstances that create imbalances; not in the biochemistry of the brain, but in the living conditions of individuals—and societies—that go mad by default.
This book argues that the root causes of mental and emotional disturbances afflicting hundreds of millions of people worldwide sprout from complex sociological issues.
While people worry about the yield returns in their retirement accounts, the future itself has been losing interest to the point of bankruptcy. The mirage of a future that will go on as usual, in spite of the overwhelming odds against it, is the quintessential madness of illusion that is spiraling out of control.
