    Abstract

    In spite of one psychiatrist's play upon words, infatuation with myth, and diatribes about mental illness, people still get sick in their minds and disturbed in their behavior. They are known to have lost control of their impulses and to have committed dangerous acts causing injury to themselves and to others. Patients have described hallucinatory and delusional experiences, have become disorganized and confused, have lost contact with reality, and have required treatment in specialized hospitals, there to be protected for their own sake as well as for others and to receive help toward halting the disease process, controlling it, curing it.
