Description

Dr. Thomas Szasz was a Professor of Psychiatry Emeritus at the State University of New York, Adjunct Scholar at the Cato Institute and a Lifetime Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association whose long list of educational accomplishments, credentials, honors, biographical listings and awards speak for themselves. Considered by many scholars and academics to be psychiatry’s most authoritative critic, Szasz has authored more than 35 books on the subject, and has been acknowledged by many as a staunch defender of liberty and human rights. He co-founded the Citizens Commission on Human Rights in 1969 as the world’s first mental health watchdog organization. He is the recipient of dozens of awards and honorary titles and has won the admiration of many scholars and defenders of liberty. “Dr. Szasz was one of those rare individuals who could not be silent when liberty was threatened.” — Congressman Ron Paul “There are few of us who have devoted our entire lives to fighting man’s inhumanity to man. Thomas Szasz was one of those few and now joins the rest of those freedom fighters who belong to history.” — Dr. Keith Hoeller, Editor, Existential Psychology & Psychiatry “One of the smartest and most thorough defenders of autonomy and liberty of our time.” — Brian Doherty, Senior Editor, Reason Magazine “Throughout his long life, he did not simply fight the good fight, he fought a truly magnificent fight.” — Professor Richard E. Vatz, Towson University
