The underlying theme of this book is the analysis of Corrington’s ecstatic naturalism as a breakthrough movement that combines the fields of semiotics, theology, depth psychology, and philosophy in a new metaphysics of nature. Ecstatic naturalism provides a viable alternative to Peirce’s semiotic conception of the self and to Jaspers’ existential elucidation of Existenz.

"Bipolar" means more than mood swings and chemical imbalances. It is a genetic brain regulation malfunction causing not only mood but behavioral symptoms. Severity and symptoms vary along a spectrum of disease presentations, from a happy, positive personality, to a moody temperament, to chronic and recurrent depressions, to classic manic-depressive illness. It is a chronic disease with periods of illness as well as remission. Keeping the disease under control requires daily maintenance and vigilance for emerging symptoms. The goal of this book is to help the bipolar person successfully manage his or her illness and live a full and meaningful life. First, the reader will learn all about bipolar disorder: how it presents, how it is diagnosed, how it is passed down in families, and how it affects women as compared to men. Next, the various types of treatment and the logistics of daily maintenance are discussed in detail. Finally, the advantages and disadvantages of bipolar disorder are explored and the lives of interesting and outstanding historical and current bipolar individuals are examined.

As the research continues to accumulate, we find that the mainstream understanding of schizophrenia and the other related psychotic disorders has lost virtually all credibility. We’ve learned that full recovery is not only possible, but may actually be the most common outcome given the right conditions. Furthermore, Dr. Paris Williams’ own groundbreaking research, as mentioned in the New York Times, has shown that recovery often entails a profound positive transformation. In Rethinking Madness, Dr. Williams takes the reader step by step on a highly engaging journey of discovery, exploring how the mainstream understanding of schizophrenia has become so profoundly misguided, while crafting a much more accurate and hopeful vision. As this vision unfolds, we discover a deeper sense of appreciation for the profound wisdom and resilience that lies within all of our beings, even those we may think of as being deeply disturbed, while also coming to the unsettling realization of just how thin the boundary is between so called madness and so called sanity.
