R. D. Laing - Blue Plaque - Ardbeg Street
Ronald David Laing was born in the Govanhill district of Glasgow on the 7th October 1927. He was a Scottish psychiatrist who wrote extensively on mental illness in particular, the experience of psychosis. Later on Laing was seen as an important figure in the anti-psychiatry movement, , although he never denied the value of treating mental distress. He challenged the core values of a practice of psychiatry which he thought considered mental illness as a biological phenomenon without regard for social, intellectual and cultural dimensions. (October 1927 23 August 1989)
