Doctors Thoughout Time Have Made Fortunes....A Quotation from Dr. R.D. Laing


"Doctors have throughout time made fortunes on killing their patients with their cures. The difference in psychiatry is that it is the death of the soul." 

Dr. R.D. Laing, M.D.

R.D. Laing (October 7, 1927 – August 23, 1989), was a British Psychoanalyst, Social Phenomenologist, Radical Psychiatrist, and Existential Philosopher.  He is often associated with the anti-psychiatry movement although, like many of his contemporaries also critical of psychiatry, he himself rejected this label. He made a significant contribution to the ethics of psychology.
