I found John Campbell's thoughts about schizophrenia and 'thought insertion' very interesting. I was diagnosed with schizophrenia in 1980 and have been on medication ever since. Best wishes. :)


the philosopher John Lysaker has done some excellent work with his brother on schizophrenia.

I would consider that we take into account the findings of Thomas Szasz in his famous book 'The Myth of Mental Illness'. Incidentally, my favourite author 'Hermann Hesse' and his books were filled with references to this condition, and as I reckon, in his Nobel winning book 'The Steppenwolf' he describes this 'Schizo-mania'(as he chose to write) in a completely magical point of view.
