Question description

For this second Discussion Board Post, please read chapter 6: "On Being Sane in Insane Places" in the book: Mapping the Social Landscape (on Canvas under the 'Files' tab).

Doctor Martin Luther King Junior advocated for creating an international association for the advancement of creative maladjustment and believed that people in our age are too well adjusted to injustice - that we have guided missiles and misguided people.

I pose the question to you - that Stanford University Professor Rosenhan posed:

1. If sanity and insanity exist, how shall we know them? And by extension, how do we tell the normal from the abnormal - the sane from the insane?

2. What examples do we have for certain behaviors that could, in one context, be considered abnormal, while in another normal?

3. What, if any underlying principles/observations/hypotheses can you gain from reading this study that puts 8 "sane" people secretly into 12 "insane" places (psychiatric hospitals) to see if psychiatrists can tell them apart?

4. What does this tell us about the "stickiness" psychodiagnostic of labels?
