Ronald D. Laing is a prominent psychologist who criticizes social constructs. His books and research profoundly affect the philosophical perspectives of a generation of psychology students.
Laing discusses spending time in a mental hospital to understand institutionalized experiences. He believes "assaults" on a patient's chemical system is invasive and often unnecessary. Patients should have access to a professional they deem safe.
Laing discusses his involvement with the psychoanalytic movement during his early career. He continues to draw on studies of psychoanalytic theory.
Laing considers Carl Jung's theory of archetypes within his research and writing on the collective unconscious. Jungian theory is a mixture of scientific and psychological ideas.
Laing hopes his most significant contributions to the field of psychology will occur in future works. He considers criticisms of his work and what he will study in the future.
