New Release: Francesca Iannelli, Maria "Philosophy and madness. From Kant to Hegel and beyond"

We are glad to give notice of the release of the book Philosophy and madness. From Kant to Hegel and beyond, edited by Francesca Iannelli, Mariannina Failla (Mimesis International, 2024).

From the publisher’s website:

This book aims to reflect on mental illness through considering the influence that Criticism and German Idealism exerted on directions of philosophical, scientif­ic and psychoanalytical thought in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and which can still be perceived today. It aims, therefore, not only to offer today’s cul­tural and scientific debate an analysis of otherwise undetected aspects of classical German Philosophy but also to shed light on subjects and issues present within current philosophical, psychiatric and scientific investigation.
