Psychopolitics: The Discourse of Psychiatry and Modernization Processes in Post-1989 Poland

The main thesis of my project is that the modernization processes after ’89 and the public discourse of psychiatry in Poland are mutually incompatible. The aim of this project is to analyze the discourse of psychiatry philosophically and politically as well as to develop a new theoretical perspective instrumental to improving the psychiatric patients’ adverse situation. Based on selected philosophical conceptions I will present a new political conception of psychiatry.
