Mental Illness and Psychology

Foucault, Michel. Mental Illness and Psychology. Translated by Alan Sheridan. New York: Harper and Row, 1976.

Foucault’s Mental Illness and Psychology (originally titled Maladie mentale et Personnalité; then, Maladie Mentale et Psychologie, 1954; English translation, 1958) was Foucault’s first book, but it was also a commissioned piece. Later repudiating his argument, Foucault rewrote significant portions of the 2nd edition (1962).
