Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. David Graham Cooper (1931, Cape Town - 1986, Paris) was a British psychiatrist, noted theorist and leader in the anti-psychiatry movement, along with R. D. Laing, Thomas Szasz and Michel Foucault. Cooper was born in South Africa and graduated from the University of Cape Town in 1955. He moved to London, where he worked at several hospitals and directed an experimental unit for young schizophrenics called Villa 21. In 1965, he was involved with Laing and others in establishing the Philadelphia Association. An "existential Marxist," he left the Philadelphia Association in the 1970s in a disagreement over its growing interest in spiritualism over politics.show more
