This chapter discusses sanity — which was seen as showing no evidence of insanity or incapacity. The dividing line between physical illness and insanity, and between temporary or voluntary states and true madness or stupidity, are investigated. At one level, being sane means being able to carry on a normal life. On the other hand, the criteria of normality are predicated on the degree to which a person was socialized.
