J. indd 20 8/25/2010 3:00:07 PM Mental States 21 As Rieger suggests, given that the majority of literature examines people, personality, and psychology, we once again stress our argument that it should be no surprise that a large proportion of this literature thus examines what we might term the otherness of these elements – that which psychiatry terms psychopathology, the clinical collective term for madness.

I had contemplated often, with distressing inconclusiveness, that there might be no other earthly reason for their taking me to the toilet, as they did now and then, and leaving me there for hours, except for the purpose of spying on me in isolation.
