Dr. Kusters is the author of A Philosophy of Madness: The Experience of Psychotic Thinking. In his book, he writes and argues about what psychosis is - or madness, as he prefers to call it. He approaches madness from a philosophical perspective, which is enriched, and has been lived through, because he has had psychotic experiences himself. For this work, he received the Socrates Award for the best philosophy book in Dutch in 2015, and it has been recently translated into English and published by MIT Press.

The USM Philosophy program is housed in the College Arts and Sciences. Learn more about the program at
