Résumé

#6: How can "insanity” and "mental health” be defined? Does the mental asylum have a repressive or medical function? Does psychiatric practice really serve the interests of patients? Intellectual effervescence around the concepts of psychiatry already bloomed before May 68, but psychiatrists Paul Brétecher and Boris Cyrulnik help us to understand how these events provided new impetus. A new generation of practitioners began to emerge, one that was inspired by the criticism of institutions and the anti-psychiatry movement.
