Doris Lessing’s Antipsychiatry pdf free download. The spectacular success of psychoanalysis in I Never Promised You a Rose Garden sharply contrasts the failure of therapy in Doris Lessing’s fictional world. Indeed, the two novelists reveal the central ambiguity of
psychiatry, its capacity for good and evil. The enormous growth of the profession in the twentieth century has brought with it enormous problems, and the growing pessimism about psychiatry is as conspicuous as the optimism of a generation ago. The “triumph of the therapeutic”—to use Philip Rieff’s expression—has created a new secular mythology in which the psychiatrist, replacing the priest or shaman, is both exalted and feared for his
almost limitless power.
