Insights Toward Sanity explores Brenden MacDonald’s onset of schizophrenia through poetry, autobiography, and philosophy. Following a selection of poetry written in breakdown periods, in an autobiographical account of his life MacDonald reveals personal struggles with reality and a society that itself seems mad at times. The book concludes with philosophical explorations of contemporary ethical issues on the way to healing self, society, and nature. With his lucid and well crafted prose and poetry, MacDonald shares his life and ideas with passionate conviction, a commitment to justice, and a persistent desire to transform self and society with a spiritual reverence for the environment.
