When The Far Side of Madness was first published in 1974, John Weir Perry's deep insight into the nature of so-called "schizophrenia" opened the way for a radically new, more compassionate approach to this condition. This pioneering work of Jungian psychiatry reframes acute psychotic episodes in the context of visionary experience of schizophrenic patients and describes innovative methods of handling them.

John Weir Perry was a Jungian psychiatrist and the author of many books, including The Self in Psychotic Process, The Heart of History, and Trials of the Visionary Mind. During the 1970s Perry founded an experimental residential facility called Diabasis, in Berkeley, California. This was designed as a comfortable home where young adults, who were experiencing the initial days of their first "acute schizophrenic break," could live in a supportive atmosphere and be empowered to go through the experience without any treatment by medication, electroshock or locked doors. He later wrote The Far Side of Madness, a book about Diabasis.
