    Perry, a psychiatrist, discusses psychotic disorders from a Jungian perspective. He proposes that the content of delusion thought is meaning and is actually a renewal process where mythological themes, such as rebirth of the king, the hero's journey, being a new messiah, etc. is the psyche's attempt to move beyond a limiting mental framework. Perry believed that people can go thru this process and arrive at a state of being weller than well, on the far side of madness. I agree with Perry's argum Perry, a psychiatrist, discusses psychotic disorders from a Jungian perspective. He proposes that the content of delusion thought is meaning and is actually a renewal process where mythological themes, such as rebirth of the king, the hero's journey, being a new messiah, etc. is the psyche's attempt to move beyond a limiting mental framework. Perry believed that people can go thru this process and arrive at a state of being weller than well, on the far side of madness. I agree with Perry's argument but found that the book took a long time to say things that could have been said suciently in less pages. Nevertheless, it is an important book for Jungian oriented psychologists and students of psychology.
