Ontological Insecurity: A Discussion of R.D. Laing
Show Notes

In this episode, Will and Adam are joined by Sasha Warren from unsoundmind.org to discuss the work of critical psychiatrist R.D. Laing, focusing on the first part of his book "The Divided Self" and its notion of the ontological insecurity of the schizophrenic mode of experience. We explore Laing's phenomenological method, his formulations of the self's anxiety about its being, and question the contemporary values of his Ontological Security system. Thinkers also discussed are Foucault, Freud, Deleuze, Guattari, and many more.
