Paranoia

Book Review: Paranoia

Paranoia is a gripping and thought-provoking book that explores the complex nature of paranoia. Written by Daniel Freeman and Philippa A. Garety, this book provides incredible insights into the different facets of paranoia.

The authors employ a narrative style that is both informative and engaging, which makes for an enjoyable read from start to finish. The book delves into the history of paranoia, its symptoms, and how it affects individuals on a daily basis.

One of the things that stood out to me about this book was its ability to make me feel as though I was experiencing paranoia myself. It offers a unique perspective on what it’s like to live with paranoia, which can be incredibly helpful for those who suffer from it.

Furthermore, Paranoia highlights various perspectives on how individuals can overcome or manage their paranoid tendencies. As someone who has experienced anxiety in the past, I appreciate that they provide various coping mechanisms that are both practical and effective.

The only critique I have about Paranoia is its length – at only 188 pages, I found myself wanting more information on certain topics within the book. However, this was not enough to detract from my overall enjoyment of the book.

Overall, Paranoia is an excellent resource for anyone looking to learn more about paranoid tendencies or those looking for ways to cope with their own experiences of paranoia. It’s an insightful and informative read that will leave you feeling empowered and informed on the topic of paranoia.

Description : Are we living in a uniquely paranoid age? Catalysed by the threat of terrorism, fears about others have reached a new intensity. The roll call of apparent dangers seems to increase by the day: muggers, child abductors, drug dealers, hoodied teenagers. Crime has apparently reached such high levels that CCTV cameras are required in every town centre, and parents are so fearful that many children never go out alone. Until recently, no one suspected just how common paranoia was. But new research suggests that around a quarter of us have regular paranoid thoughts, and probably lots more have them occasionally. Paranoia is so prevalent that there 's a very good chance that all of us will, at some point in our lives, be among the 25%. Yet, although paranoia is as common as depression or anxiety, most of us know almost nothing about it. What is paranoia? What causes it? Are some people more prone to paranoia than others? Are we more paranoid now than we used to be? How should we deal with our paranoid thoughts? And how can we reduce the amount of paranoia in our society? Co-written by one of the world 's leading psychologists of paranoia, and drawing on the latest scientific research, this lively and accessible book answers these key questions, highlighting for the first time the central role of paranoia in our world today....

He's dating the girl of his dreams. His life is perfect. And all he has to do to keep it that way is betray everyone he cares about and everything he believes in.

ISBN :

Description : Delusional disorder, once termed paranoia, was an important diagnosis in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, and only in 1987 was it reintroduced into modern psychiatric diagnosis after being subsumed with schizophrenia. This book provides a comprehensive review of delusional disorder for psychiatrists and other clinicians. Beginning with the emergence of the concept of delusional disorder, the book goes on to detail its manifold presentations, differential diagnosis and treatment. Many instructive case histories are provided, illustrating manifestations of the various subtypes of delusional disorder, and related conditions in the paranoid spectrum. This is the most wide-ranging and authoritative text on the subject to have appeared for many years, and the first to suggest, based on the author's extensive experience, that the category of delusional disorder should contain not one but several conditions. It also emphasizes that, contrary to traditional belief, delusional disorder is a treatable illness....

Description : There is a curious parallel between the philosophy of science and psychiatric theory. The so-called demarcation question, which has exercised philosophers of science over the last decades, posed the problem of distinguishing science proper from non-science - in par ticular, from metaphysics, from pseudo-science, from the non rational or irrational, or from the untestable or the empirically meaningless. In psychiatric theory, the demarcation question appears as a problem of distinguishing the sane from the insane, the well from the mentally ill. The parallelism is interesting when the criteria for what fails to be scientific are seen to be congruent with the criteria which define those psychoses which are marked by cognitive failure. In this book Dr Yehuda Fried and Professor Joseph Agassi - a practicing psychiatrist and a philosopher of science, respectivel- focus on an extreme case of psychosis - paranoia - as an essentially intellectual disorder: that is, as one in which there is a systematic and chronic delusion which is sustained by logical means. They write: "Paranoia is an extreme case by the very fact that paranoia is by definition a quirk of the intellectual apparatus, a logical delusion. " (p. 2....
