Abstract

This review essay on Thomas Szasz's book Faith in Freedom: Libertarian Principles and Psychiatrie Practices elaborates Szasz's position that mental illness is a myth, psychiatry is pseudo-medicine, and imposed psychiatric treatments are assault and incarceration. It then describes Szasz's critical chapters on Ayn Rand's and Nathaniel Branden's views on psychiatry, mental health, and psychiatric coercion.
