5.0 out of 5 stars Snow: The work of a brave master!, 8 Jan. 2010
This review is from: Snow (Paperback)
Orhan Pamuk has writen a book, which in my view, is one of the finest work has ever been produced by a non-westren author! Everyone, who would like to understand the negative impact of Islam over the lives of those unfortunate countries, where Islam had been imposed must read this masterpiece. the book beautifully explores the deep-rooted conflict between islamic and turkish identity, which in my veiw, has strong relevance to all countries, where Islam was enforsed centuries ago!What makes this book very special is the author's extraordinary ability to explanin such a complex subject in the context of a passinate love story between the main character of the book, Ka, and his beautiful lover, Ipek! you have to have a strong heart to handle the sad ending of this epic tragedy! highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars "red beard", a real masterpiece!, 5 Nov. 2005
This review is from: Red Beard [1965] [DVD] (DVD)
Red beard is truely a masterpiece. no any other movies had ever effected me that much! by this film, Kurosawa has shown that he is not only a great film director but also a superb psychologist. In "red beard" he analyses the very nature of human experience, suffering, in a unique way, which is emotionally overwhelming and intellectually puzzeling. While watching the film, i became so involved with the story and i felt that i was playing a part as an actor. The film is plain and humane, and proves that a doctor only can make a difference in his/her patient's life not only by his/her knowledge and expertise but also by compassion, empathy and dedication!

5.0 out of 5 stars Post-Kraepelinian Approach to Madness!, 6 Sept. 2005
"Madness explained" is an excellent example of a new synthesis, which assertively, and of course scientifically, challenges the dehumanizing approach to mental health that dominated the mainstream of psychiatric practice over the last hundred years. By reviewing an impressive amount of scientific literature, Bentall argues that there are not any scientific evidence to suggest that biological changes in the brain are the primary cause of madness. These biochemical changes, Bentall argures, might be part of the brain's response to emotional trauma. He rejects the dualistic approach in investigating madness and propose a more scientific, and humanistic alternative, which embraces data from all other disciplines namely, neuroscience, anthropology, sociology and psychology.
Bentall also shows how categorical classification of psychological disorders has limited our understanding of the real nature of psychological disorders. He argues that by focusing on patients' complaints (symptoms),rather than focusing on invalid labelles, such as schizophrenia we can identify underlying psychological mechanisms, which are responsible for these meaningful symptoms.
I recommend this book to anybody who wants to have a better understanding of psychosis.
