 R. D. Laing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Laing was born in the Govanhill district of Glasgow, Scotland and went on to study medicine at Glasgow University.
Laing argued that the strange behaviour and seemingly confused speech of people undergoing a psychotic episode were ultimately understandable as an attempt to communicate worries and concerns, often in situations where this was not possible or not permitted.
Laing's most enduring and practically beneficial contribution to mental health, however, is probably his co-founding and chairmanship in 1964 of the Philadelphia Association and the wider movement of therapeutic communities, adopted in more effective and less confrontational psychiatric settings.

Laing’s many books on European countries are seldom read nowadays, but at the time they had a wide readership which included politicians and economists who wanted to be better informed.
On the gable of Papdale House there is a plaque which commemorates Malcolm Laing, the historian, and his younger brother Samuel Laing, the translator of Heimskringla.
