History of Madness - Michel Foucault

This quote was added by malevolarky
To answer that question, these people who will be looking back at us over their shoulders will have little to go on. Only a few burnt clues: a fear that came back repeatedly over the centuries that madness would rise up and swamp the world... that careful attention, from the nineteenth century onwards, that tried to surprise in madness something that would reveal the truth of man... a hesitancy to recognize their inanity or their decisiveness.
