About this title


Second Edition, with a new preface by John Beebe

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.

About the Author:

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.
