London: Harper Collins, 1996. A Fine unmarked copy which has age darkening to page edges with VG+ dustjacket which is price clipped. xvii + 254 pages. 9 illustrations. The eminent psychiatrist shows, with characteristic and humane insight, how gurus cast doubt upon current psychiatric distinctions between sanity and madness, and how all of these have more in common than meets the eye. This study of some of the best-known gurus shows how the apparently mad and the apparently sane are not different in kind but simply appear in different parts of the spectrum of sanity. Included are Georgei Ivanovitch Gurdjieff, Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, Rudolf Steiner, Carl Gustav Jung, Sigmund Freud, Jim Jones, David Koresh, Ignatius of Loyola, and Jesus himself. B2B. First Edition.
