A Psychologist’s Search for the Meanings of Madness

Read the book Agnes’s Jacket: A Psychologist’s Search for the Meanings of Madness by Gail

Hornstein.

 

In a 1,000-word essay, provide your reflections on the book. Your reflections, although written

in essay style, should address the following questions/topics:

1) Summarize/express Hornstein’s main points or arguments. Given this, what is the significance

of the title’s reference to Agnes’s jacket?

 

2) How did Hornstein research her book? What challenges did she face?

 

3) How have your views of madness been influenced by reading Agnes’s Jacket? That is, what

were your views before reading the book, and how did reading her account affect those views?

Be specific and give examples.

 

4) What recommendations does Hornstein have (implicit or explicit) for how to respond to

people with emotional problems? Do you agree or disagree with these recommendations? Why

or why not?
