    Publication of the book "Las políticas de la locura. Psiquiatría y sociedad en la España de Franco" (Madness politics: psychiatry and society in Franco's Spain), by Enric Novella

    Professor of History of Science at the Universitat de València and IILP researcher Enric Novella has just published the monograph "Las políticas de la locura. Psiquiatría y sociedad en la España de Franco" (Madness politics: psychiatry and society in Franco's Spain) within the prestigious collection Historia y Memoria del Franquismo of Publicacions de la Unversitat de València. Attached is the text of its editorial presentation.

     

    In recent years, the study of the evolution of psychiatric discourses and practices during the Franco regime has become a relevant chapter in the historiography of science in 20th century Spain. Although this evolution unfolded in changing coordinates and included very different aspects (such as the cultivation of clinical-theoretical speculation, the introduction of therapeutic novelties, the institutional strengthening of the specialty or the dissemination of the new mental health ideology), the Franco regime was above all a period in which mental medicine was particularly conditioned by the prevailing socio-political framework. Considering the main axes along which the political and social dimension of psychiatry was articulated throughout the forty years of dictatorship (ideology, doctrine, government, management and citizenship), this monograph offers a new overall interpretation of the peculiar "psychopolitical" constellation of Franco's Spain as a complex and protean amalgam of reactionarism, conservatism, totalitarianism, authoritarianism, technocracy and (finally) civic overflow.
