Louis A. Sass


Ph.D., California (Berkeley)

Louis A. Sass has strong interdisciplinary interests involving the intersection of clinical psychology with philosophy and the arts, and with literary and cultural studies. His publications include critical analyses of psychoanalytic theory; phenomenological studies of schizophrenia and of modernist art and literature; and articles on notions of truth and of the self in psychoanalysis, hermeneutic philosophy, and postmodernism. He is the author of Madness and Modernism: Insanity in the Light of Modern Art, Literature, and Thought and The Paradoxes of Delusion: Wittgenstein, Schreber, and the Schizophrenic Mind. He also coedited Hermeneutics and Psychological Theory.

Dr. Sass has been a member of the Institute for Advanced Studies in Princeton, New Jersey, and was awarded a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Fulbright Foundation. Currently, he is a fellow of the New York Institute for the Humanities and a research associate in the history of psychiatry at Cornell Medical College. He also is a research associate in the Center for Cognitive Science and a faculty associate of the program in comparative literature, both at Rutgers. He has served as president of two divisions of the American Psychological Association: Psychology and the Arts, and Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology.
