Going Sane Maps of Happiness

Going Sane Maps of Happiness free read Ó 6 Being sane has long been defined simply as that bland and nebulous state of not being mentally ill While writings on madness fill entire libraries until now no one has thought to engage exclusively with the idea of sanityIn a society governed by indulgence and excess madness is the state of mind we identify wi Those of us who don t find madness inspiring are surprisingly short of options and at present there is not much help availableBeing impelled to record notes while reading is always the most promising sign that once again I have stumbled onto a very important book There is so much good to retain in Going Sane But the reader should not be so naive as to not expect a bit of disjointed rhetoric when addressing the subject of sanity Such a wide ranging topic that would be difficult at best to pin down and keep focussed on There are diversions to be expected in a concept so insanely complicated to explain Imagining possibilities for ourselves involves telling stories about what we think we are like what we think we want and what we think we are capable ofThe sanity of True Genius we must assume is that the True Genius is a fallen creature who can write who can describe things from the point of view of the unfallenThe sane genius transforms everything that might disturb us the wildest dreams into something that is familiar and reassuringThe horrifying the dispiriting the bizarre are made utterly convivial by the sane True GeniusSanity checks the madnessonly the sanity of True Genius can manage and bear madnessMadness reuires genius to make it viable Indeed that may ultimately be what genius is what sanity has to be a talent for transforming madness into something other than itself of making terror comfortingSanity is this talent for not letting whatever frightens us about ourselves destroy our pleasure in life and this for Lamb is essentially a linguistic talentThank goodness for great fiction and the courage it takes to read it But then to see and understand the truth in fiction and apply it to our lives is where the trouble begins for most of us Figuring out what makes one tick is key to enjoying a healthy and satisfying life Exploring all options that come to mind is critical to developing an understanding of what one truly wants This does not mean to act out every fantasy or dream one holds It means to investigate the idea the possibilities to extend the behavior out by using reasoning in order to consider the conseuences To think we ever have life all figured out is insane at best To understand and accept that the best we can hope for is a muddling through is infinitely sane The infantile pleasures of being loved adored stroked held cuddled infinitely attended to and responded to and thought about of only sleeping eating and playing these are the truly satisfying pleasuresIt is in fact a form of madness to not know to forget to attack and trivialize what really makes you happyThe sane adult is aways smuggling his childhood into the future refashioning his childhood pleasures as legitimate adult interestsIt is the madness of modern human wanting not to want to know about its own wantingThe deeply sane must not betray their desire the superficially sane accommodate their desire to the needs of othersThe superficially sane tend to convince us that we are the products of our environments arguing that if you give people the right upbringing and education you will make them well adjusted The deeply sane on the other hand tell us that there is always to us than our environments that there is something within us call it genius or a life force or instincts or genes that exceeds the world that we find and to which we must pay our most serious attention because it is driving us one way or another into what we are and will beThe sane person s first acknowledgement is that her life is moved by luck than by judgment she sees her relationships as coincidences rather than destinies her talents as unearned gifts her bodily life as genetically contingent her parents as giving her a good or a bad chance and so on The only necessities her life has are the ones she ascribes to them The second acknowledgement of the sane is that they are peculiarly animals who are often unconscious of what they want and that some of the wants they are most conscious of serve to obscure their keener satisfactions And this is because their third acknowledgment is that what they most want they must not have because it is forbidden themSanity should not be our word for the alternative to madness it should refer to whatever resources we have to prevent humiliation

review Going Sane Maps of Happiness

Going Sane Maps of Happiness free read Ó 6 Th most keenly Though ultimately destructive it is often credited as the wellspring of genius individuality and self expression Sanity on the other hand confounds us One of the world's most respected psychoanalysts and original thinkers Adam Phillips redresses this historical imbalance He strips our lives back What an intoxicating marvel Poetry mix with psychology and language here to explore the world of madness and sanity Phillips argues that there are definitions for madness in our culture than there are for sanity We both love and are terrified of those eccentrics in our midst fearing that we are heading down the same slope while also somewhat jealous of their freedom He begins with a dive into literature with Hamlet a central figure This is followed by a look at our relationship to our sanity from a range of views Sane sex greed He ends with an attempt at a definition for sanity Critics have assailed him for his lacklustre exploration of the literature I personally found his insights and the poetry of his language well as I said intoxicating He does on occasion write in a very dense style where his love for spinning language seems to outweigh his desire to communicate the idea Was his editor intimidated by this man s ability But overall the book is a must for anyone interested in exploring the human psyche and most definitely writers
