Psychiatrist born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1927. In 1960 his first work The Divided Self suggested that being "crazy" was a perfectly appropriate response to an insane environment pretending to be "normal". Smearing your shit on the asylum walls, for example.

"I must play their game, of not seeing I see the game."

Laing's other famous books include Sanity, Madness and the Family (1964) and The Politics of Experience (1967).
