The mental breakdown of a nation. J. Herbert Fill Fill, M. D.

The mental breakdown of a nation

New York: New Viewpoints, a division of Franklin Watts, Inc, 1974. 136p., wraps issue, somewhat edgeworn with slight corner-creasing and an inked annotation.

Antibehaviorist crisis brought on by the author's job, overexposure to B.F. Skinner's adherents witting and unwitting, and nuts amongst the public. It must be an unusual circumstance, that New York City's mental health commisioner was for these several years a Korzybskian maverick (if I am seeing him rightly); several of his meditations arise as he returns to his office, views corpses of recent suicides in the city morgue. He hates the World Trade Center (pp.62-64, wonders why it was built) and Sesame Street. Articulate eccentric.
